A type: single-engine aircraft for training radio operators and aircraft connected

Capacity: pilot and three passengers

Based on the most successful pre-war airplane, "Vega Gull» (Vega Gull) of "Persivel» (Percival) (15 copy of which Royal Air Force acquired just before the start of the war), the plane "Procter» (Proctor - warder) has been modified according to the requirements of the Ministry of Aviation to the aircraft for training radio operators and liaison aircraft.

The first prototype passed operational tests with a few remarks, the serial planes "Proctar" I began to enter the Royal Air Force in the middle of the 1940-ies. After the release of 247 Mk I aircraft (all of them were equipped as connected and had dual control), Persel started production of 175 Mk II and 437 aircraft Mk III, all of them were equipped for training radio operators. The last Royal Air Force to be commissioned was a modification of the Mk IV (supplied 258 copies), which featured a more elongated fuselage with a cab for four people. Although all of them were equipped as airplanes for training radio operators, some Mk IV airplanes were later removed electronic equipment, and they were converted into coherent "workhorses".

After the war, more than 200 aircraft "Procter" were sold to private buyers, although some planes Mk IV remained in the squadron due to 1955 years. The company "Persivel" produced as 150 civil aircraft "Procter" in the modification of Mk 5, four of which were acquired by the Royal Air Force for air attache. Because of solid wood construction aircraft "Procter" badly suffered harsh British winter, and today only three copies are fit to fly.
