OO-POM Avions Fairey Primer
The Primer was a post-WW II variant of the
Tipsy M, designed in Belgium during the 1930s by
Ernest Tips.* Avions Fairey built Fairey aircraft under license
to the Belgian Government, although
Tips designed and built a series of light aircraft locally.
OO-POM, which first flew in 1938 was
apart as war began and shipped to the parent company in Hayes,
Middlesex. A production
line of some ten examples was to have built as ab initio trainers
although, in the event, only one other
is reputed to have been constructed. .
* In the early 1950s Ernest Oscar Tips
continued his development of ultra light aircraft and several
Tipsy B and Nipper types were produced many of which are still
flying. . .
