Taylor Aircraft Co

Designer Clarence Gilbert Taylor, a self-taught aeronautical engineer from Nottingham, England, can be called the father of private aviation in America, as he designed the original Taylor Cub in 1931. Along with his brother Gordon he formed Taylor Brothers Aircraft Corporation in Rochester, New York in 1926, offering a 2-seat high-winged monoplane called the "Chummy", although this failed to sell. After Gordon was killed flying another Taylor design in 1928, Clarence moved to Bradford, Pennsylvania, where one of the investors was William Thomas Piper, who had made his money from oil wells. Taylor abandoned the Chummy design and began work on a new inexpensive and easy-to-build aircraft. Taylor and Piper fell out and Taylor left the company, vowing to build a new aircraft superior to the Cub. He then formed his own company in 1935 as the Taylor Aircraft Company, renamed Taylorcraft Aviation Corporation in 1939. Taylorcraft's DCO-65 model was called the L-2 by the USAAF and served alongside the military version of the Piper Cub in WW2. In the mid-1940s production was halted following a major fire in the Taylorcraft factory at Alliance and the company went into bankruptcy.
