Pioneer 2

First aircraft produced by Scottish Aviation was the Prestwick Pioneer single-engined five-seat STOL monoplane, first flown 1950. For counter insurgency the Scottish Avia-tion A.4/45 Prestwick Pioneer 2 was to fill the niche. It came about via the Pioneer 1 and was re-engined with the more powerful Alvis Leonides engine.
