Taylor JT-1 Monoplane



Designed by John Taylor, the Monoplane is a single seat, cantilever, low wing. acrobatic aircraft built with the object of producing an airframe for not more than £100 Sterling. The wing is a constant chord structure with an RAF 48 aerofoil section, and consists of a centre section and outer panels. Each panel has two spruce and plywood spars, wooden ribs and a plywood covered leading edge D nose, the remainder of the wing being fabric covered. Split trailing edge flaps are fitted. The fuselage is a conventional wooden structure hav-ing spruce longerons and frames and plywood covering. The wing centre section is built integral with the fuselage. The fin and tailplane are plywood covered wooden structures, while the rudder and elevators are fabric covered wooden structures. The main undercarriage consists of cantilever legs fitted with coil springs for shock absorption. The wheels have Avro Anson tailwheel tyres. A leaf spring tail skid with a steerable skid pad is fitted. A 6 Imp. gallon fuel tank is installed behind the firewall. The prototype flew with a 37 h.p. JAP engine, but converted Volkswagen engines are also suitable. Since the first prototype flew in June 1960, no modifications of any kind have been incorporated.
