Stinson 108 Voyager

The Stinson 108 Voyager has the classic lines of many American civil aircraft of the immediately post-war era. Ours was built in 1946. It's fully airworthy, and flies with the Flight Wing.

The Stinson is a powerful plane for its size, having a six-cylinder engine and constant-speed propeller. It's also downright pretty to look at.

A lucky Museum volunteer who had taken on a tedious task was treated with a flight in the Voyager. Here he is, very happy to be getting an impromptu flight lesson in such a lovely classic! She flies very nicely, and as a very light plane feels all the little bumps and gusts. Her interior is still original.

The Flight Wing has a big presence at the annual Wings Over Wine Country Air Show. Here, one of the certified Voyager pilots taxis her to her parking spot where she'll be on static display.

The Stinson 108 takes her place among many other classics at the Wings Over Wine Country Air Show. The Voyager was a popular plane among pilots returning from World War II, who wanted to stay in the air and not incur high costs.

Aircraft History

From Wikipedia:

The Stinson 108 Voyager was a popular general aviation aircraft produced by the Stinson division of the American airplane company Consolidated Vultee, from immediately after World War II to 1950. It was developed from the prewar Model 10A Voyager. Stinson was bought by Piper Aircraft in 1949. All Stinson model 108, 108-1, 108-2, 108-3 and 108-4 aircraft were built by Stinson at Wayne, Michigan. When Stinson sold the type certificate to Piper in 1949, approximately 325 airplanes of the 5,260 model 108s built by Stinson were complete but unsold. These 325 model 108s went to Piper as part of the sale. Piper then sold that inventory as the Piper-Stinson over the next few years.
