In 1936, the Pasped Aircraft Co. of Glendale, California, introduced a two-seat side-by-side cabin monoplane called the Skylark. Its engine was a 125-hp Warner Scarab radial engine housed in a low-drag cowling. The fuselage was a rectangular steel-tube welded structure covered with Duralumin metal panels forward and fabric aft. The wings were wire-braced from above, had plywood leading edges, and were covered with both fabric and Duralumin (the latter only at the center section). The single surviving example still flying is fitted with a 175-hp Warner Super Scarab.
