Eastbourne Aviation Company Biplane

  The E.A.C. Biplane was designed by Mons. E. L. Gassier and built by the Eastbourne Aviation Company to the order of Lt. R. E. B. Hunt, a pupil of the school who took his Royal Aero Club Aviator's Certificate No. 715 on 22nd December, 1913, while flying the E.A.C. Monoplane. It was a single-seater, fitted with the 50 h.p. Gnome, and was completed in February, 1914. The machine was intended for exhibition flying, and was flown also by F. B. Fowler who found it extremely pleasant to handle. It was taken away from Eastbourne by Hunt just before the outbreak of the 1914-18 War. Cruising speed, 65 m.p.h.
