Our “New” Taylorcraft

Yesterday, we removed the tarps and brought our newly acquired ’37 Taylorcraft A out of its hangar and moved it to the south Kelch Museum hangars. It will stay there for the summer and should look good once it is cleaned up a bit.

This aircraft was built in May of 1937, just before C. Gilbert Taylor was joined by William C. Young and the company name changed to Taylor-Young Airplane Company. It is powered by a Continental A-40, which is a pretty anemic powerplant, but it is airworthy and has flown quite a bit around the Brodhead area in recent years.
