Hello there;


I just bought a fuselage frame, fuel tank, logbooks and other paperwork for a Curtiss Wright Jr. I will be looking for parts and drawings for this aircraft. Anybody out there have anything?

Thanks, 

Not yet as I'm wondering if engineering drawings would be available for a private aircraft. i know they have drawings available for my L-13 which was a project funded by the military with public $. But I'm wondering if they are able to provide people with the drawings for the CW-1 a civilian aircraft. I will look into this though.

You might try the Glenn Curtiss Museum in Hammondsport, NY.

You can find contact info on the website:

There is one at the Fantasy of Flight Museum in Florida and Kermit Weeks' staff is always very helpful regarding direction.  I would also look at the FAA directory and contact other current owners.  You may have done all this already.

I have been fascinated with that little airplane.  Looked for one pretty actively a year ago. May I ask where you found yours?

Best,

John

Just FYI - this thread was linked on the EAA Vintage Facebook page and a couple of people have responded there as well. You can see those here:

Pieter,

I know two guys (father & son) that are in the final stages of restoration of TWO beautiful Curtiss Juniors. As soon as I get in touch with them I will try to get you together. They should be a wealth of information.

Best regards,
