ABC Robin

The ABC Robin was a British single-seat light aircraft designed by A. A. Fletcher in 1929. It was a high-wing monoplane of conventional taildragger configuration. The cockpit was fully enclosed, an advanced feature for its day.

The Robin, registered G-AAID, was built by ABC Motors Limited at Walton-on-Thames in 1929. The first flight was at Brooklands in June, and displayed at the Olympia Aero Show in July. It was modified later in the year with the windscreen moved back to allow access to the fuel filler caps from the outside, and an enlarged fin and rudder. The sole Robin built was scrapped at Brooklands in 1932.
