Timm S-160-K / PT-175K / N2T Tutor
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 PT-160K 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. This prototype was developed into the PT-175K for the civil market, and 262 of a modified variant with the Continental R-670 radial engine were ordered by the US Navy with the designation N2T-1, the aircraft being delivered in three batches during the course of 1943.
