Abstract:

Flight tests on the Prestwick Twin Pioneer indicated it possesses features which impart relative short take-off and landing characteristics considered desirable for Army light-cargo aircraft. The Prestwick Twin Pioneer does not have sufficient weight-carrying and radius-of-action capabilities to meet the stated Army requirements for a light-cargo aircraft. The stability and control of the Prestwick Twin Pioneer is adequate to meet Army requirements however, it does not offer advantages over present Army utility aircraft in this respect.
