Götaverken GV 38

SE-AHG (seen here with myself in the rear seat) is the only example flying in the world today. Built by the Götaverken shipyard, Gothenburg, in 1938, it has been completely restored to flight status by Göteborgs Veteranflygsällskap. The aircraft received a modern Continental horizontally-opposed 4 cylinder engine in 1962, having originally been powered by a 5-cylinder Le Blond radial. One other GV 38, SE-AHC (the first of the series to be built), is currently being restored and will fly with its original engine. This work is being done in the Aeroseum, Gothenburg, where I am a voluntary guide. The design is based on the Rearwin, of the USA.
