Dame Flora – a special plane for sale!

From Andrew McLeod

‘Dame Flora’, registration G-LEOD, is a Pietenpol ‘Air Camper’ and was hand built by my late father and Clan MacLeod Society of England member Ian McLeod, completed in 2008. She has flown approximately 100 hours over the fields of Kent, and is easy to spot in her yellow MacLeod tartan colour scheme.

The Air Camper is a 1920’s design monoplane, popular amongst amateur builders. My father’s project brought together his twin passions for flying and craftsmanship. She featured in the April 2023 edition of the Clan MacLeod Magazine (no. 136), and you can read her full story there.

Dame Flora is being re- certified as airworthy, has a Subaru 1800 cc engine, and seats one. She is currently hangered in Kent at Farthing Corner airfield, and ongoing hangarage may be available. Any flying MacLeod with an interest in owning a unique plane should contact Andrew McLeod for further details +44 7900 606194  mcbear@globalnet.co.uk. Offers in region of £9,500 considered.
