Well the Westland IV and Wessex date from the earliest 1930s, a little earlier than the Rapide and hence more rivals with the Dragon. They may well have offered developed versions of the Wessex to potential customers. But like I said in the last post there were plenty of similar sized aircraft seeking sales at this time.

There were plenty of small feederliner aircraft and projects at that time, all seeking a market with the smaller airlines both in the UK and overseas. No competitons though, as far as I am aware.

OK no competition but a rival design from Westland,did you hear about it ?,I think it was from
1929 ?.

This is a bit of a guess but I wonder if this design from John Edgley's US patent US4657209 could give a clue. The other illustrations in the patent are of the Optica and a twin-engine design.

EdgLEY EAX, not EdGAR EAX. Edgley was the manufacturer of the Optica observation aircraft.

Edgley EAX is new to me.
