Role Sport aircraft

Manufacturer Rearwin
Designed by Noel Hockaday and Douglas Webber
First flight 1931
Number built ca 30

The Rearwin Junior was a sport aircraft produced in the United States in the early 1930s. It was a conventional, parasol-wing monoplane with two seats in tandem in an open cockpit and fixed, tailskid undercarriage. An optional enclosed canopy was available. The wings were of wooden construction while the fuselage and empennage were built from welded steel tube, with the whole aircraft skinned in fabric.

Although designed to meet the lowest possible sale price, the onset of the Great Depression severely limited the size of the market for sport aircraft, and only a small number were built.
