Taylor JT-2 Titch



The Taylor JT.2 Titch was designed in 1964 to meet Rollason’s Midget Racer competition, placed second overall. A prototype built by John Taylor was first flown at Rochford on 22 January 1967 with a Continental C85-12F engine. It crashed in May 1987, killing Taylor. The plans then being sold by his widow.

The Taylor Titch has a reputation as a pleasant-to-fly aerobatic plane. Its stall occurs at a very high angle of attack and is straightforward, with no wing drop and a height loss of only 50 feet. This single-place monoplane features all-wood wings with plywood and fabric cover-ing. Its fuselage is also an all-wood structure that includes double-curvature plywood covering and aluminum cockpit side panels. When the low-powered Taylor Monoplane became known in the United States, requests were made for permission to fit larger engines than the design permitted. This led to the introduction of the Titch. The Titch is stressed for any engine from 40 to 90 hp, the only provision being a reposition of the engine bulkhead for engines of 65 hp or more. This allows for the use of VW, Lycoming or Continental powerplants.
