Этот G-ACEG - единственный построенный Clipper. Самолет вначале оснащался двигателем Pobjoy R мощностью 75 л. с., но в 1938 году получил более мощный Pobjoy Niagara III мощностью 90 л. с.
A NEW "SPARTAN" TWO-SEATER: This little machine has been built as a "full-scale" experiment, carried out as cheaply as possible, in order to provide the fullest possible information before going into production. The machine will be flown strenuously for a time so as to make sure that when, later on, production is started, there shall be no "snags." It is a side-by-side two-seater, fitted with Pobjoy "R" engine, and the fuselage of the experimental machine is of plywood construction, while the wings are the outer portions of the Stieger Monospar S.T.4. The first test flights, carried out by Col. Strange, Capt. Scott and Mr. Ash on Wednesday of last week, were entirely successful. The loaded weight with pilot, passenger, luggage, and three hours' fuel is 1,300 lb. The machine was designed by Mr. H. E. Broadsmith.
