Jim Miller: N 14J

The construction is just like a model, the 'Titch' has been a consistent trophy winner and a total pleasure to fly, living up to or exceeding all my hopes and expectations. Control pressures are well balanced and all aerobatic manoeuvres compatible with the standard fuel and oil system are easily accomplished. For a personal airplane-this is the ultimate.

Jake Gazzard: G-TICH

By far the most beautiful aircraft I have flown, from the  harmonised and light controls, to its very sporty performance and feel. The Titch is an absolute delight and even for a relatively low hours power pilot, easy to fly, being fairly forgiving. A stall speed of around 46 mph with the flaps down is very respectable on such an aircraft. John Taylor created a truly stunning aeroplane both visually and to fly.

Brian Smith: Formula 1 Racing Pilot

The 'Titch' is simple in construction and doesn't suffer the control harmony problem of some other designs. It’s probably the most docile of the breed in handling and performance. If a homebuilt in wood is what you’re looking for, then the 'Taylor Titch’ is the answer.
