Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander
The BN-2 Islander was a mid 1960s Desmond Norman design
produced with manufacturing
expertise by the late John
Britten in a plant on the Isle of Wight, in the U.K.
over the years
resulted in the aircraft being built outside of the U.K. but the
enterprise has now
been repatriated and
is again producing aircraft at the Bembridge, IOW,
location. The US
imports were imported
by Jonas Aviation, the distributor, and hence initially all had "JA"
regos. This one was
(and still is, I believe) owned by Channels Islands Aviation out of
Airport, California and
was available for charter/hire.
