Culver Cadet

Mooney's 'wooden wonder' is a darling
by Barry Schiff, AOPA Pilot, November 2002

It is little wonder that the Culver Cadet attracted so much attention when it was introduced in December 1939. It had a factory-guaranteed cruise speed of 120 miles per hour while emptying the fuel tank at only 4.2 gallons per hour. Specific range was an incredible 28.6 miles per gallon. Other two-place airplanes of that era struggled to achieve 80 mph using the same 75-horsepower engine. The petite Cadet rapidly became America's sweetheart, the darling of the sportsman pilot.
