The Thruxton Jackaroo was designed as a four-seat cabin general purpose biplane. The first conversion first flew on 2 March 1957. Eighteen Tiger Moths were converted by Jackaroo Aircraft Limited between 1957 and 1959 and one aircraft was converted by Rollason's in 1960. Three aircraft were equipped with crop spraying gear. In 1963 and 1964 the Greenjackets sport-parachute club regularly used a Thruxton Jackaroo for sky-diving activities at Thruxton airfield.
