Weatherly Aviation W201

weath-201

 

When the supply of Fairchild aircraft ran out, John Weatherly started to build the complete aircraft. Two model W201s were built in 1966/67, N86686 and M86687. Powered by a 450-hp R-985 Pratt & Whitney, these aircraft had an improved wing design with the span increased to 39 ft.
 
The 1970 production aircraft, the W201A, were built between 1968 and 1971. These can be identified by a triangular shaped fin and rudder. More than 100 were built at $22,800.

The W201B model commenced production in 1971 and 45 aircraft were built at $31,500 in 1974.
 
Another version followed in 1975, the W201C, and this was the Weatherly that introduced the wingtip vanes which diffuse the normal formation of the wingtip vortex.The 201, 201A, and 201C models were under TC A10WE.
