Pippa has appeared in every episode of Budgie the Little Helicopter.
Pippa appears to inspired by a Piper Warrior aircraft, designed by light taxi work. However, unlike her real-life basis, Pippa lacks a propeller, which is located 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.
