Authentic Sopwith Airplanes with Rotary Engines

KipAero’s full-size, authentic Sopwith airplanes are developed using the original factory drawings. Fitted with new production rotary engines, the result is flying an authentic WWI machine producing the original flying experience of one hundred years ago. The Sopwith reproduction aeroplanes – 1½ Strutter, Pup, Triplane, and Camel – are available in kit form or assembled. Our goal is to assist the vintage aviation enthusiast by providing the parts and expertise needed to accurately build, restore, repair and maintain your vintage airplane.

Reproduction verses Replica? What’s the difference?

A ‘reproduction’ is exactly like the original. It is produced to factory specifications. A ‘replica’ looks like the original but is not produced to original specifications. All of KipAero Sopwith aeroplanes are authentic reproductions.
