both spot on

Two of which VL522 and 523 were built



David, Martin and Brian have worked diligently on this one to produce a very rare Auster

The General Service Requirement for the ideal Air O.P. aircraft to succeed the Auster 6 was written by condensing wartime know-how into the A2/45 specifications. Three manufacturers – Auster, Hestons and Miles, built widely different prototypes in attempts to improve the performance of the Auster 6 – they all failed.

Trials quickly showed that Auster’s contender for the A2/45 specifications had some very pecuilar habits. It was a tandem seater in which the rear observer faced aft. The overall silhouette was a distinct breakaway from the traditional Auster and owed a lot, to the wartime Fi.156 Storch.
Apart from a 300 yard take-off, the flap handling was most odd. Outsized flaps were wound down by a handwheel at the pilot’s left hand. These flaps, when down, produced a very high drag coupled with a strong downwash on the tailplane.

None of the A2/45 series were accepted.
