Aeronca Aircraft Corp 11

aeronca11chief


After World War II, the Chief was introduced as the Model II AC, and a float version (11ACS / S11AC). It was a variation of the Model 7 Champion and differed primarily by having increased fuselage width to permit side-by-side seating and a lowered cowling line for better visibility. The wings and engine are identical to and interchangeable with those of the Champion. The IIAC was powered by a 65 hp Continental. The Model II BC, and a float version (11BCS / S11BC) was also powered by an 85-hp Continental. A further improvement on the Chief was designated the II CC Super Chief, and a float version (11CCS / S11CC) and was powered by an 85-hp Continental with a higher gross weight, and wider c/g range. It featured new balanced elevator surfaces to meet new trim requirements called for in the Civil Air Regulations. Its cruise speed was 95 mph, and its climb rate was 600 fpm. The 11AC Chief was built from 1947 to 1951.
