Rearwin Trainer #CA01 Easy Built Balsa Wood Model Airplane Kit Rubber Powered
The story of the Rearwin Trainer goes back to 1938. The Rearwin Sportster, a two place tandem seated aeroplane, had been successfully sold and the company wanted to capitalize on its success. Rae Rearwin was reluctant to produce a two-place side-by-side aeroplane as he felt the disadvantages of extra drag outweighed the sociability of the side-by-side design. Ken Rearwin convinced him that the fashion was moving away from tandem-seated aeroplanes and Rae agreed with the new design. The first Trainer was finished in time for the 1939 Cleveland Air Races and was flown there by Ken Rearwin.
