Corby CJ-1 Starlet

Background

The Starlet was designed by Australian aero engineer John Corby for a competition held by English company Rollason Aircraft Ltd in 1964. The design was placed eighth, although it became the first from the competition to be built. The prototype (VH-CBS) first flew on August 9th, 1967. The semi-aerobatic aircraft is of all wood construction, and features plywood and fabric covering. The first New Zealand Starlet was ZK-DEO, built in 1975. Six now appear on the New Zealand register (DEO, EEZ, JAM, ONE, PMA, and TOY)
