    First Flight Airdrome Aeroplanes Sopwith Tabloid

    On June 23d, 2012, Harvey Cleveland masterfully piloted our Airdrome Tabloid on its first flight.

    The plane flew great! It is powered by a Valley Engineering 115HP 2332cc VW with a 2.47:1 Reduction drive swinging a 90" propeller. Empty Weight 791pounds. Wing span 26'. Gross Weight ~1320pounds.

    This is a two seat side by side aircraft that represents a 1913-1915 Sopwith Tabloid. It is offered as a kit from Airdrome Aeroplanes and can be built in one of three variants: 1) Sopwith Tabloid (race/sport plane) 2) Sopwith Schneider (WWI Naval Scout aircraft) 3) Sopwith Baby (WWI Scout aircraft).

    Our aircraft is painted to represent a Royal Naval Air Service 1915 Sopwith SS3 variant of the Tabloid.
