In the late 1990s the two-seat Air Camper and single-seat Sky Scout designs are very much alive, with numerous examples still flying.

Mogg Sky Scout
 

This Sky Scout was started by a 17 year old Alan Mogg, of Sydney, in 1936, but was not completed and flown until December 1940, mainly due to having to comply with the then Civil Aviation Board's requirements. It was fitted with a Salmson AD9 engine which required the extended mount to bring the Cof G into limits and no doubt, brought about the larger fin and rudder.
