Timm S-160-K / PT-175K / N2T Tutor / PT-160K / PT-220

timm-n2t

 

Under the trade name Aeromold, the Timm Aircraft Corporation developed a special form of construction using bonded plywood. To validate the new structural medium and ultimately to provide a commercial outlet, the company produced its private-venture S-160 /PT-160K(747) cantilever low-wing trainer with tandem accommodation in open cockpits and fixed tailwheel landing gear whose main units looked very spartan with their unfaired tubular metal legs. Designed by Otto Timm the sole S-160, NX15593, had an optional cockpit canopy.
