Artist's Description

The construction of G-APBZ was started in June 1957 at Croydon and its first flight was on the morning of 1st January 1958, at the controls was the owner of the Tiger Club, Norman Jones. In spite of a gusting wind and light rain, the smart blue machine gave an impressive show on a number of circuits and low runs across the field. It was the first of a batch of five in the initial production run. The Rollason built aircraft were different from the original French design, they included some changes to the Druine Ardem 4CO2 engine, which itself was a conversion of the four cylinder air-cooled 1192cc capacity Volkswagen car engine. Rollason’s actual conversion work involved the installation of dual ignition and a carburetor heater, this work was done at the Croydon engine shop. The major differences in the airframe were the smaller wheels, the tailskid and the top cowling “bump” which covers the carburetor air heater.
