OUT AND ABOUT: The Chrislea monoplane has now done quite a lot of test flying in the hands of Mr. Dawson Paul and appears to be well up to expectations in general performance. This machine is a side-by-side seater cabin monoplane with a Mikron engine (for which, incidentally, the Chrislea people are licensees) and every effort has been made in it to produce a machine possessing a good view and safe flying characteristics with a normally conventional layout.
The sole Chrislea Airguard, designed by Messrs R. C. Christophorides and B. V. Leak and built at Heston tn 1938. This two-seater had a cruising speed of 104 m.p.h. and an empty weight of only 640 lbs
