See a 1931 Taylor E-2 Cub at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1931

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Continental A-40  37HP

The first Cub was the Taylor Model E-2, a two-seat trainer with the newly-introduced 40 HP Continental flat-four engine. The E-2 was not a rousing success out of the gate but as E-2’s found homes across the country and pilots gained experience the word got around and people lined up to fly. It was designed by C.G. Taylor with a goal of building a well-behaved airplane for sport and training. Taylor’s advertisement declared it “America’s Safe Airplane.” This one is the seventh production airframe built and was restored in 2007-2008. Its first flight post-restoration was on May 15, 2008.
