1931 Curtiss-Wright Travel Air 12W (was 12Q) Sport Trainer beautifully restored, in excellent
flying condition and wow-factor looks. 110 hours since Airframe restoration and Engine
Major Overhaul.


Unique opportunity to acquire a 1931 Curtiss-Wright 12W bi-plane lovingly restored to
beautiful flying condition. This aircraft has been restored for practical use with judicious
updates and modifications without compromising its classic features. Multi-year restoration
completed in 2004 and meticulously maintained since. It is in excellent flying condition and
has flown 110 hours since restoration.
Designed as a high-performance training aircraft by Herbert Rawdon and Ted Wells.
Originally built as a CW-12Q Sport Trainer, its original engine was subsequently replaced by
a Warner Scarab S50 145HP 7-Cylinder radial in 1970, thereby changing its designation to a
CW-12W and increasing its MTOW to 1800 Lbs.
Original registration: NC352M (subsequently NC370N and N370N prior to importation to the
UK in 1981).
