Taylorcraft L-2M Grasshopper

See a 1943 Taylorcraft L-2M Grasshopper at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Musem. Year: 1943

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Continental A-65

Taylorcraft had been building airplanes with side-by-side seats but the market demanded tandem seating, especially for military and Civilian Pilot Training Program use. Production began in July 1941 and buyers were soon practically snatching them off the production line. The L-2 was built with Continental, Lycoming and Franklin engines and sported a distinctive “greenhouse” cabin. The L-2M had a fully cowled engine and spoilers. This airframe was modified into the TG-6 training glider with about 250 built.
