Standard Built Sopwith Pup


Aircraft Feature: Standard Built Sopwith Pup


 What the Sopwith Pup will look like.





I am pleased to introduce you to the first of a Series of features about this Standard-built Airplane, built at Canley during 1917. In fact, Standard built 850 of these aircraft. One of them is currently being rebuilt and the website will follow its progress over the coming months, until hopefully it will be airworthy.


The restoration is being carried out in the West Country. In order for it to be a success, the owner desperately needs access to as much information as possible, either from contacts of the Standard Motor Company, or the Sopwith Aeroplane Company itself. Though in is unlikely that anyone is still alive that worked on these airframes, maybe their families have drawings, plans or photographs, or know of people that have access to such material. Anything, no matter how inconsequential it may seem, may help to complete this brave project. It will be copied and returned safely.


If you know of the whereabouts of Sopwith material, please let the Webmaster know in the first instance  webmaster@standardmotorclub.org.uk If you have anything or know of anyone that has, please help make this plane fly!
