Curtiss R-600

Note: This item is currently in storage.

The Curtiss R-600 "Challenger" air-cooled engine, rated at 180 hp, was used in experimental versions of the PT-5 and PT-11 trainers during the 1929-1931 period. Although the R-600 was installed in only two military airplanes, it is historically significant because it was the Air Corps' first twin-row radial engine.

This engine is on loan by the Curtiss-Wright Corp., Woodbridge, N.J.
