Culver Cadet LCA

See a 1941 Culver Cadet LCA at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1941

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine:Continental A-75  75HP

The Cadet was designed in 1939 by Al Mooney as an evolution of the Culver Dart and it was a hit right out of the box. It features elliptical wings (like the British Spitfire) for speed and low aerodynamic drag and it had mechanically retractable landing gear. It was a popular cross-country flyer, being one of the most efficient airplanes ever built, and as a sport plane it was the best high-speed bargain in the country. It was sold with a Continental engine or, as the model LFA, with a Franklin engine. The Army chose the Cadet in 1940 for use as a radio-controlled target drone with several designators including LAR, LAR-90, PQ-8(A) and Q-8(A) and for the Navy TDC-1 and TDC-2.
