Curtiss Wright Travel Air 12-W

See a 1931 Curtiss Wright Travel Air 12-W at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1931

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Kinner R-55 165HP

The C-W Model 12 was built as a 2-seat sport/trainer airplane. Three different engines were offered by the factory.  Originally built with a fully-cowled Warner Scarab engine of 110 HP, our airplane later had a 125 HP Kinner installed. It was maneuverable and robust which made it eligible for use as an acrobatic trainer in the secondary stage of the Civilian Pilot Training Program. Had its price been competitive for the times, no doubt many more would have been sold. Our airplane was owned for several years by Melba Beard (for more on Melba Beard see the 1929 Brunner Winkle Bird CK).
