Re: Fuel tank needed please.

Hi Neil

When I had my fuel tank replaced about 18 months ago, I gave the old 30 litre one to John Brompton. G-XD. I can’t remember what he wanted it for and it may be that he still has it and it’s going spare. I’ll be seeing him this weekend so I’ll ask.

Kind regards

Kate

Re: Nippers in the South East?

Hi Mark I know one or two taller Nipper pilots who have the mod and fly very comfortably. Most notably, David Greenwood, seen here on a visit to Breighton. Easily 6’. Shame about your hangarage issues. The Nipper takes up no room at all and I’m quite peeved that I have to pay the same as a Zlin or C...

Mini plane....

Never heard the Nipper referred to as the “jigsaw” aeroplane. Nice little film.

Canopy Trim

The rubber trim on my canopy has started to perish and I’d like to replace it. Any ideas, please?

Sorry to hear you’re selling your Nipper. Good luck in finding it a new home.

Re: OWNERS 'TESTIMONIALS' - WHAT ARE THEY LIKE TO OWN & FLY

Hi Ross

I have crude disc brakes on my Nipper which are ineffective above 20 mph and should only be used for taxiing. I’ve managed like that for 20 years of flying the Bee.

Enjoy Nippering...
