History

Patrick Garland and Doug Bianchi built a version of the French Piel Emeraude light aircraft that would meet British airworthy requirements.[1] Named the Garland-Bianchi Linnet it was built at White Waltham Airfield and first flown on 1 September 1958 from Fairoaks Airfield.[1] The Garland Aircraft Company was formed to put the Linnet into production.[1] The company built two more Linnets although the second was not completed and it was sold to Fairflight Limited to continue production as the Fairtravel Linnet.[1]
