Highlights

  • This Butterfly is I believe the only example in UK, made at the factory in Belgium (factory built and very very rare today) in 1983, one of I believe 12 built by factory (all were only factory built at the time of production) there were another 10-12 more built but only the fuselages were completed.

Additional Remarks

  • This Butterfly is I believe the only example in UK, made at the factory in Belgium (factory built and very very rare today) in 1983, one of I believe 12 built by factory (all were only factory built at the time of production) there were another 10-12 more built but only the fuselages were completed, wings were partly constructed but all unfinished, sadly this company went into liquidation after one or possible two years of a small production of the Butterfly, only around three including this example are known to still exist today, I think these were the early days of the introduction of Microlites similar time as the Shadow Microlites were being produced so these Butterflies are the very early examples of the beginning of the Microlite era, requires no pilots licence but would be advisable for any one buying this Microlite to at least have a quite a few hours of professional training before taking her up, dead weight is approximately 65 kilo's or with the original nose pod (the only one made at the factory on special order) is around 67-68 kilo's, petrol is 2T and holds10 litre's, She can be viewed at Mark Jeffreys air strip at Little Gransden, well looked after there as very clean hangers and very interesting aircraft surrounds the Butterfly, engine is the new EOS 100 Booster and ICI, also comes with original Moteur Bicylindre J.C.V. 274 cc twin carburettor, there is much history with the purchase and even the original instruction sheets also a set printed (copied) in english on how to fly the Butterfly, similar controls to a Pou Du Ciel (Flying Flea) with Joystick control, genuine reason for sale as I also have two Fisher FP404 Biplanes , You can view it at Little Gransden Airfield near Sandy, Beds. best to contact me for a time and will make it my best to meet you at Little Gransden and give you a tour of inspection, only very serious enquiries please, it's priced to sell, I paid quite a bit more then what I'm asking for this very very rare flying machine....
