Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Vickers R.E.P. Type Monoplanes were a series of single-engined monoplane aircraft built by Vickers prior to the outbreak of the First World War. They were developed from a French design for which Vickers had purchased a license, with eight being built. On 1 January 1911 Vickers, Sons and Maxim (which would be renamed Vickers Limited later that year), entered into a license agreement to build R.E.P. aircraft and aero-engines, as designed by the Frenchman Robert Esnault-Pelterie, and sell them in Britain and its Empire. Following the agreement, Vickers purchased a French built R.E.P. monoplane to use as a demonstrator together with a R.E.P. built rear fuselage.show more
