Turner T-40A

turner-t40a


The T-40 was so successful that it collected 18 awards and convinced Turner that the only thing wrong with it was that nobody could ride along to enjoy the reading on the airspeed indicator; thus he created the T-40A. It is a two-place version of its predecessor. Turner simply divided the entire fuselage of the T-40 down the middle and increased the cabin width from 24 to 40 inches. Flight tests showed that the 85-hp engine would still deliver 163 mph top speed with a fuselage nearly twice as wide as before and with considerably more airframe weight. Both Turners feature folding wings.
