One more ambitious project is born with Avialogs. After spending years within literature about aircraft, helping and collaborating with teams restoring wings from the past, the desire to bring back to the sky one of them is born.
As Avialogs is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, a city with a rich aeronautical past and present, the choice has been halted on the Curtiss-Reid Rambler.
There is no survivor of this aircraft known and from my own point of view, the aesthetic of this aircraft is the essence of what a biplane should be. From a building perspective, the required time is estimated between 3000 and 4000 hours.
UPDATE: For financial reasons, this project will be on hold for an undetermined time. Focus will be set on the Stinson 10a.
The aircraft will be a Curtiss-Reid Mk.I Replica.
Please contact me if you can find:
