                                          Yet another of the lightplanes built specifically for the Lympne Light Aircraft Trials.  Bert Hinkler
                                          won the Grosvenor Challenge Cup in it in 1924.  Initially powered by a 33 h.p. Bristol Cherub,
                                          the Avis was re-engined in 1925 with a 35 h.p. Blackburn Thrush.  It participated in the two-seater
                                          tests at Martlesham Heath in 1926 and was flown by (then Wing Commander-  later Sir) William
                                          Sholto Douglas.  The aircraft was finally withdrawn from active use in 1928.
