The Sport Aircraft Builders Club of WA Inc (SABC) hosted its Annual Fly-In at the SABC’s airfield at Serpentine Airfield, about an hour’s drive south of Perth, WA, on Sunday 27 September 2015.

Many of the aircraft on display were built or restored at Serpentine, and this free event is an opportunity for SABC members to show the public the results of their many hours of effort in building or restoring aircraft. A number of aircraft also flew in from other areas of Western Australia, including a contingent of Vans RV aircraft from Albany.

This year, the fly-in included World War Two training aircraft, such as the Tiger Moth, Harvard and Stearman, a Titan T-51 (a scale replica of the P-51 Mustang WW2 fighter),  modern, sleek sportsplanes like the Fly Synthesis Synchro, and the Colomban Cri-Cri – the World’s smallest twin-engine jet.

To promote aviation to a wider range of visitors, SABC invites car and motorcycle clubs, and even a miniature steam traction engine club – these towed kids around the hangars.

This is a fly-in, not an airshow, but there were some formation flypasts by vintage biplanes, a few aerobatics demonstrations, and a line of aircraft also taxied out from the hangars, along the taxiway and back to the hangars.

Wandering around the hangars, you can chat with the SABC members as they proudly discuss their aircraft projects. As always, SABC member Bert Filippi drew a large crowd with his magnificent vintage aircraft collection, including a Sopwith Pup from World War One, a 1932 Pietenpol Aircamper, a 1933 De Havilland DH-83 Fox Moth that was formerly operated by the Flying Doctor Service, a French Air Force Nord 3202, a Tiger Moth, and a CASA 1-131E Jungmann. There are many other interesting aircraft based at Serpentine.

The SABC was established in 1973 by a small group of members of the Sport Aircraft Association of Australia (SAAA). They leased some land in Serpentine and formed the SABC to own and operate an airfield. Club members and their families cleared the scrub, and over the years built two runways (a 910 metre bitumen runway with lights and a 600 metre grass runway), taxiways, hangars, a Clubhouse, and other facilities. The club has 300 members, with over 130 aircraft based at Serpentine in more than 100 hangars.

The Cri-Cri is the smallest twin-engined manned jet in the world. This one was converted from its previous two piston engines to use two Czech-built PBS TJ20A turbojets. Each engine weighs only 2.1kg and produces 20kg of thrust. At idle, the engine turns at 35,000 RPM and at max power, 120,000 RPM. The two engines together consume 1.3 Litres per minute. The engines have to be overhauled every 50 hours of operating time. Photo © David Eyre

VH-ZUZ was built in 2003. Peter built it from plans – some bits he had to guess. Sourced all parts himself. Took 6000hrs over 3 years (or 40 hrs/wk, 52 weeks/yr). Hardest was hand-making the cowlings by “tin bashing”.

VH-RQQ Eagle X-TS 150 (MSN 017) owned by Geoffrey Danes at SABC Annual Fly-In, Serpentine Airfield - Sun 27 September 2015. Built in 1998 and first registered on 11 September 1998, this aircraft was one of two (the other was VH-RQI) which were originally operated by the Royal Queensland Aero Club. The Eagle X-TS was originally conceived by Western Australian inventors Neil Graham and his father Deryck Graham. Graham Swannell and John Roncz were then engaged to design the aircraft. The single-seat prototype Eagle X-P1 was a taildragger based on the Rutan Quickie and first flown in 1984. The Eagle X-TS (Two Seat) had tricycle gear and first flew in 1988. This was later produced and marketed as the Eagle 150. Eagle Aircraft entered liquidation in 1989, and development slowed, so the aircraft was not certified until 1993. Eagle Aircraft was then purchased by a Malaysian company and production was moved from Fremantle to Malaysia in 1999, where the type was produced by Composites Technology Research Malaysia (CTRM).

VH-WQW Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 Sport Trainer (MSN 003) owned by Franciscus Smit, at SABC Annual Fly In, Serpentine Airfield – Sun 27 September 2015.
Built in 2001, ex N264SA. This biplane was originally designed by Great Lakes Aircraft Corporation of Cleveland, Ohio in 1929. It has a straight lower wing, but a swept upper wing, to assist with recovery from flat spins, and is designed to take +9/-6 G. Although the company had deposits for 650 aircraft, it only built 264 before the Great Depression caused the company to close in 1936. However, the aircraft were very popular as an aerobatic aircraft and from the 1960s to today, a number of individuals or companies have either produced or sold plans for the aircraft.

Mignet HM.293 Flying Flea under construction at Serpentine Airfield - Sun 27 September 2015. The Flying Flea (French: Pou-du-Ciel - English: Louse of the Sky/Flying Flea) was designed by Frenchman Henri Mignet in 1933. The unusual name was derived from the French nickname for the Model T Ford car - "Pou de la Route" or "Louse of the Road" because it was so common. Mignet planned to create a flying equivalent, affordable to everyone. In 1934, he published the plans and building instructions, leading hundreds of people worldwide built their own Flying Fleas. However, early versions had design flaws could cause an unrecoverable dive under certain conditions, and some builders made modifications which made the aircraft even more dangerous to fly. This tainted the reputation of Mignet and his aircraft, even though it could be safely designed and built. Hundreds are still flying today and more are under construction. Photo © David Eyre

The outer wing panels can be detached for transport or storage, as seen here. It was also later used as the basis for the Hummel Bird.

VH-UCP/NX12941 Pietenpol Sky Scout B4A1 (MSN 12) owned by Bert Filippi, at SABC Annual Fly-In, Serpentine Airfield - Sun 27 September 2015. Bernard H. Pietenpol designed the Pietenpol Air Camper, which first flew in 1928. He also designed and published plans for a single-seat version, the Pietenpol Sky Scout, which was smaller and powered by a Ford Model T car engine. The aircraft is made of spruce and plywood, and building requires basic woodworking skills and tools, plus the ability to make a few metal fittings to attach the wooden parts together. Bert's Sky Scout was built in 1932, previously registered NX12941, then N12941. Its US registration was cancelled 14 Oct 2005 and it was registered here on 20 October 2005 as VH-UCP.
