Pippa
Pippa is a small green single-engined monoplane. She has a peach coloured face with tuft of blonde hair, a black nose and a big pink and white polka dot bow. She also appears to be wearing pink lipstick and has rosy cheeks. She was the second aircraft to arrive at Harefield Airfield, and at first, teased Budgie and called him a yo-yo. (She called him a snail after overtaking him during the fast race.) After a race and several comparisons about who was the best, they both became firm friends. She enjoys helping out, and also loves using the heli-wash (as opposed to Budgie). She is voiced by Abigail MacVean.

Appearances

Pippa has appeared in every episode of Budgie the Little Helicopter.

Basis

Pippa appears to be inspired by a Piper Warrior aircraft, designed for light taxi work. However, unlike her real-life basis, Pippa lacks a propeller, which is at the front of all Piper Warrior aircraft. This is likely because the animators would have had difficulty animated a moving propeller in front of Pippa's face. Despite this, Pippa can still be heard making sounds of a bi-plane whenever she flies.
