Corben Junior Ace

The Junior Ace is lightweight, easy to build, fun to fly and requires minimal maintenance. It has been modified from the original Corben Baby Ace so that it can utilize aircraft engines. The fuselage has also been widened, the horizontal stabilizer was modified for easier construction and modern aircraft wheels and brakes are now called for. With nearly a 34 ft wingspan and Clark Y airfoil, the Pober Junior Ace, designed by EAA founding president Paul Poberezny, is docile in stall and landing patterns. Airframe is 4130 steel tubing, wings are all wood and the recommended powerplant is a Continental C-85. Empty weight of the Junior Ace is 750 pounds and gross capacity is 1,320 pounds.
The Pober Junior Ace made its first flight with Captain Bud Judy at the controls. This first flight was successful and displayed the short field capabilities as well as low stall speed - ideal for small airstrips. The drawings for the airplane have full size wing rib drawings and two types of ailerons - the Friess aileron being a bit more responsive and lighter on aileron control. The indicated stall speed with one person on board is approximately 36 mpg. Indicated cruise with the Continental C-85-8 was a little over 80 mph. The Pober Junior Ace is open cockpit. The fuselage is chromoly steel tube, the tail group is chromoly steel tube and flat sheet stock to form ribs. The landing gear is chromoly tube with coil spring shocks. Wings are spruce spars and ribs. Two place side by side.
The kit price in 2009 was US$20950.
