Piggott Military Biplane

  As their entry for the Military Trials of 1912, Piggott Brothers and Co. Ltd., 220-224 Bishopsgate, London, E.C., built a small two-seat biplane with two cockpits in tandem. It was No. 29 in the contest, and was piloted by S. C. Parr, who qualified for his Royal Aero Club Aviator's Certificate No. 184 on 20th February, 1912, with a Bleriot at Hendon. The engine was the 35 h.p. Anzani, driving a 7 ft. Normale propeller, and the three-bay wings of only 100 sq. ft. area had single interplane struts. The pilot was seated above the upper wings, but the machine was too small to lift two occupants, and was unable even to take-off with only the pilot aboard. Span, 25 ft. 6 ins. Length, 17 ft. 6 ins. Wing area, 100 sq. ft. Weight empty, 300 lb. Weight loaded, 400 lb. Maximum speed, 55 m.p.h.

The Piggott Biplane, at Salisbury Plain, entered for the Military Aeroplane Trials. - This is the smallest machine of its class yet built. It has a span of 25 ft. 6 ins., and an area of 100 sq. ft. to support 300 lbs. weight, exclusive of pilot, fuel and oil. It is a beautifully made little machine, but obviously quite a miniature in actual size. There is accommodation for pilot and passenger, both of whom look out over the main planes.
Piggott biplane was an unsuitable machine for military use although entered for the trials of 1912.
