Aeronca C-3

See a 1932 Aeronca C-3 at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1932

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Aeronca E-113, 36HP

Introduced in 1931, the two-seat Aeronca C-3 was an evolution of the single-seat C-2. The C-3 has a 36 HP (later 40 HP) two-cylinder engine. A factory demonstrator was flown on a 13,000 mile, 17-state tour showing off its practicality. Often described as a powered glider, the C-3 was a hit with flying schools and private owners due to its low cost of operation. It is a gentle flyer and early owners often flew solo with as little as five hours of instruction. The shape of the fuselage of the C-2 and C-3 invoked its nickname The Flying Bathtub and the triangle-shaped upper fuselage suggested “razor-back.” Production ran from 1931 to 1937.
