Travel Air started out with legendary engineers Lloyd Stearman and Walter Beech. They had found success in their Travel Air 1200, 2000 and 4000. In August 1929 despite the run of great success, Curtis-Wright Corporation purchased Travel Air. Curtis-Wright kept on Walter Beech to lead production. Beech took Travel Air’s 1200 and with some improvements produced the CW-12W.
This gorgeous 12W flies the skies of California’s Central Valley.
