It mentions somewhere that these were intended to train new pilots-in-training on the ground handling of aircraft.
And the wings were short enough and the 28hp not sufficient to get them into the air.
Given that the Brits later reported that far more pilots were killed in training, and especially on takeoff than were lost in combat, these Penguins sound like a wise move. ?

So, did they prove or disprove the thought that penguins can't fly?
