Mitchell designed it and Proctor built it. The first Kittiwake flew in May 1967 and was designed initially as a home build sporting aircraft. Seventeen months afterwards the partnership was split up with Mitchell going on to design a two seat version and plans for the Kittiwake I being available from Proctor Aircraft Associates. Only 4 Kittiwake I's were built and one prototype Kittiwake II.

I remember seeing this aircraft being built in a garage in Aldershott. It was designed as a glider tug to replace the ageing Tiger Moths. One of the the designer /builders was the sister of my great friend John Cotton with whom I worked at Vauxhall Motors. He always said that if she had children they would be little gliders!
