I last flew this aircraft out of EMA in the UK in 1970. It was operated by the Nipper Flying School who had the licence to build them at that time.
Be assured it was a single seater!

Shortly afterwards Nipper went into liquidation but it was a fun experience the Nipper but crosswinds were challenging!!

The aircraft in the photo belong to my dad in 1970 to 1974, based on a private farm strip just south of Bristol.

I flew a Nipper in Belgium in 1967. At the time it was the first single seater I had ever flown. Just get in it and go; a unique experience then. Since then I have flown many single seaters; everything from gliders to fighter planes, but the Nipper was my first; you always remember your first.

Specification corection: PASSENGER 0. Look at the photo, where would the PAP be seated?

Actually the Nipper was stressed to take +6G to -3G loads. So at least I would regard it as more than "semi-"acrobatic.

The Tipsy Nipper was classified as semi-acrobatic. Although underpowered it was capable of loops, rolls, and other acrobatics when begun from a dive to pick up speed.
