Hi Tony,

 

Congratulations on G-YARV's flight.  I have G-BSRK ser no 007 which is based at Mona on Anglesey.  RK still runs with a Hewland Engine and I have owned it for 10 years. It would be a good idea to set up an owners group.  I have attached an out of date list of owners that was compiled by Clive James, a mate of Phil's, in the mid 90 and updated by myself.  I met Phil at Caernarfon in September, there are photos of Phil's and my machines on www.flickr/photo/isallt  Chalrie has flown RK a long while ago at Mona.

MX, Clive's machine went to Tom Toth who has sold it on engineless.  I will contact Tom to find out where it went.

XP, Mac's machine has gone to Milton Turner milt_turner@hotmail.com

WE, Richard Nobles machine was written off and has been scrapped.

HB went to Ken Davies and then to Chris Challinor.  He has all the Hewland Engine bits. (chris.challener@ntlworld.com) Chris also has a fuselage.

One of the Rotary Engined machines is at Sleap.

Another machine was burnt when vandals set fire to a hanger several years ago.

 

Best Regards

 

Doug Blair

Hi Tony,

I read about G-YARV in the PFA magazine.  Great news!

I own and keep my own ARV G-ORIX at Caltonmoor;
and Milton Turner keeps his G-DEXP there also.
(Before buying G-ORIX, I looked at Phil Snowden's G-XARV, and Gordon
Morris's G-STWO).

An owners' website would be a good idea.
Please get in touch.

I organized an ARV fly-in at Nottingham a few years ago.
We had a barbecue, and then flew on to Sheffield.
A number turned up, including Richard Noble.

I regularly post on the Flyer website.  See:
http://forums.flyer.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=8055

I attach an ARV spreadsheet, which may be a bit out of date.
Presumably you know you can get details of ARV owners on G-INFO?
http://www.caa.co.uk/application.aspx?catid=60&pagetype=65&appid=1

You may be interested to learn that there is a project to revive the
Hewland engine, suitably modified.

cheers

Trevor Lyons

Hi Tony,

Read your article in PF mag. Looks nice.

Best way to get a group going is to create one on Yahoo. Get PF to publicise it next month (for free of course). Also tell Pilot mag and Today's Pilot, they will mention it free as well. Then see what interest comes in.

I have always been keen on the ARV, I wanted my brother to buy one, but not Hewland powered. I used to own a Bolkow 208 Junior which is very similar.

If you need help setting up the group let me know. There are a couple of points to watch out for but its not too difficult.

Regards

Roy Sears

Hi Tony

 Saw your article in the PFA Mag. I own G-SYWO (002) and I would be interested in your idea about  owner’s group. Where abouts are you based?

 My ARV still has the Hewland engine and I am currently in the process of fitting a Warp Drive Prop along with some other work needed for a new permit.

 I would welcome information on the work required and cost of replacing the Hewland with a Rotax engine.

 Look forwards to hearing from you

Dear Tony,

It was good to see your photo in this month's Popular Flying !  I have owned G-BWBZ for 18 months ( my partner Jackie is the registered owner ) and in that time have flown 125 hours, including several trips to France with 2 weeks in June / July going to Provence and back. We are now based at Nottingham Tollerton, having started last year at a grass strip near Tamworth. The Mid-West Rotary seems a very good engine, if a little unusual, and suits the airframe well. In the course of our travels we have come across one or two other ARV's but it is not a common type and we find we get a lot of interest wherever we go. Look forward to hearing from you......

Regards,

Chris Amery & Jackie Straw
