The Handley Page Basic Trainer (H.P.R.2) was a British training aircraft of the 1940s. It was a single-engine, low-wing monoplane with a fixed tailwheel undercarriage.


The H.P.R.2 was developed by Miles Aircraft as a basic trainer in response to Air Ministry Specification T16/48 for a trainer to replace the ageing Percival Prentice. It was one of a number of projects inherited by Handley Page when it took over the Miles company. Development work was carried out at Handley Page Reading (formerly Miles Aircraft)

The Basic Trainer first flew in May 1950. Testing showed it to be a trickier and less forgiving aircraft than the rival Percival P.56. Although Handley Page were confident that the H.P.R.2 could be improved, the Air Ministry elected to order the P.56 into production as the Provost.
