3 thoughts on “1946 Luscombe 8A

  1. I am looking at a Luscombe 8-A. Measured weight is 850 lbs empty. The spec sheet states in the area of 740 lbs. This luscome is a cont 65HP with metal wings and wing tanks. It has a Com radio and wind driven generator and a battery. What causes an aircraft to gain weight over thr years. Can the asessories in this case weight that much? Other mods are rear windows. 14 gallon tank gone. Shelf added behind seats. All services are painted on exterior. Total weight taken from weight and balance sheet.

  2. I am looking at an Aeronca Chief or a Luscomb 8a. Any differences on how they handle or ground loop. Which is more stable in flight? If anyone has any other thoughts I’d love to hear them
