This airplane represents a further development of the CA-61 Mini Ace. The CA-65 is a low-wing monoplane with retractable landing gear and dual controls. The high degree of efficiency produced by its design yields economic performance at all speeds. It features a streamlined canopy, enclosed engine, tapered wing, and fully retractable gear. Its wood construction cuts requirements for tooling and special jigs to a minimum. For easy storage the wings fold up in an “aircraft carrier” style.
