Turner T-40


The Turner airplane family got started in 1958. First aircraft in the series was the T-40, a sleek, hot little single-seater which won the 1961 Outstanding Design Trophy at the Experimental Aircraft Association Fly-In. Of all-wood construction and featuring a sliding hood canopy, the T-40 was first powered by a 65-hp engine and did without all the frills associated with an electrical system. In this form it cruised at 128 and blitzed along at 145 with the throttle firewalled. Later, an 85-hp package was added. Both Turners feature folding wings.
