Here is some basic information on aircraft that are covered on this page.


Aeronca LA and LB Approved Feb. 24, 1936, approved under Aircraft Specification A-596

Two place, low wing, side by side
LA has 70-hp Rearwin LeBlond, 13 built (Aerofiles)
LB has 85 or 90-hp Rearwin LeBlond, 22 built (Aerofiles)
    - There are four LB's on the 12/11/12 FAA Register, but no LA's (scroll down)
    - Aerofiles says that the prototype LW with 42hp Aeronca L-113, was so underpowered it only made one short flight [NX14558].
Aeronca LC and LCS Approved July 25, 1936 under Aircraft Specification A-614
Two place, low wing, side by side, about 25 built (Aerofiles)
90-hp Warner Scarab Jr. engine
    - LCS is seaplane, only one done (Aerofiles)
There are nine LC's on the 12/11/12 FAA register but no LCS
Interesting notes in FAA Aircraft Specifications. "Aircraft may also be approved with:"

Conventional or differential aileron control with cable and push-pull tube control systems

    b Flap operating mechanism including automobile window type lift.

Brake operating mechanism, including pedals, located between the rudder pedals and
interconnected to a hand lever at the upper left side of the cabin.


I will post other models when I have photos.

All of the slides and photos are for sale, along with thousands more on aircraft of all kinds. Please inquire.

Aeronca LC
1936 Aeronca LC N17425, serial number 2054, as seen at EAA Oshkosh 1977 (slide)
Aeronca LC N17442, 2056 at WHP Whiteman Airport, Los Angeles, CA in 8/98, and then in flight in 9/98. We don't see these very often so I put all three on to show different angles. The two Chuck Stewarts, i.e. father and son, have done a lot of aircraft slides including air-to-air and I feel privileged to have many of their photos in my collection. (Charles E. Stewart slides)
1937 Aeronca LC N17484, 2060, at MWO Middletown Regional Airport (Hook Field), Middletown, OH, 6/86 (slide, AirPix, Marion Pyles)

This old 8x10 is in my collection and maybe someone can help us identify it. The name on the truck door is "J_l___ Electric." Maybe Julian Electric although the second letter could also be an "a." Any help?
