The magazine Sailing & Gliding for February 1959 has mention of the Fauvel Super AV 36 (AV36 Mark II) and AV 22 design.... (notes written by Ch. Fauvel)

An alternative to the more expensive Link trainer flight simulator.
In the early days of aviation, aircraft with clipped wings were used to familiarise aspiring pilots with aircraft without leaving the ground.
Such a device was known as a pingouin in France, but they fell out of use. Charles Fauvel thought there was a market for something similar, even considering variants on floats, skis or as a fairground attraction. That might have been fun, with the device leaning into corners. Power was to be supplied by a small motorcycle engine, or, possibly, an electric motor.

Good Day All -

I have been perusing late '50s/early '60s EAA Sport Aviation magazines and the attached two part article was worth sharing.

Enjoy the Day! Mark
