She is nearly back in the skies after 20 years !

My Bro recently bought her from Mick Greenway who has done a very competent rebuild. As ever, there are several things to be completed, but we should be in the air shortly - don't call me shortly as I am too tall to fly the damn thing - I jam my knees under the spar and can't get full pedal travel so will probably limit myself to a couple of circuits before relinquishing my share back to Bro.

Ray (bro) was RAF pilot, then ATC, then Civvy ATC, then RAF ATC, then Flight Checker, now retired. I am an A330 Captain for Thomas Cook at MAN, have just sold a Citabria (12th aeroplane) and my Bro and I are 90% through a Vans RV7 - God knows why he bought the Nipper !

We are based in Yorkshire, Ray has a share in a very recently restored - Piper PA12 at Breighton. G-BSYG is back in the air after a 12 month rebuild and is probably better than when she left the factory !

Please have a look at my other post as I am coming up to speed on Nippers quickly - I do the T'internet thing, Ray is far too old for all of that Cool

Hi Mike,

How is the Nipper progressing? Looking forward to seeing another take to the skies.


A little help goes a long way.
