Fairchild 82

fairchild82


During 1935-36 Fairchild Aircraft Ltd in Canada continued development of the Super 71, leading to the larger ten-seat Fairchild 82, with a more conventional enclosed cockpit for two pilots, seated side by side forward of the wing giving much improved vision.


It was a braced high-wing monoplane with a braced tail unit, tail-wheel landing gear (optionally replaceable by floats or skis) and powered by a Pratt & Whitney Wasp radial engine.


Only about 12 Fairchild 82s were built, four were exported and the remainder operated by Canadian airlines.
