Designed as a high-performance training aircraft by Herbert Rawdon and Ted Wells. Originally built as a CW-12Q Sport Trainer, its original engine was subsequently replaced by a Warner Scarab S50 145HP 7-Cylinder radial in 1970, thereby changing its designation to a CW-12W and increasing its MTOW to 1800 Lbs.
Original registration: NC352M (subsequently NC370N and N370N prior to importation to the UK in 1981).
