Turner T-40

turner-t40


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. First flying on 3 April 1961, in this form it cruised at 128 and blitzed along at 145 with the throttle firewalled. It featured folding wings for storage in a single-car garage. Later, an 85-hp package was added. Both Turners feature folding wings.
