The Official Custer Channel Wing Website

Willard R. Custer"Oxnard, California, July 17, 1953 and the CCW-5, Custer Channel Wing [5-passenger], its basic fuselage and empennage modified from a Bauman Brigadier pusher, lifts off after a mere 100 ft. roll. Unfortunately for Custer and the future of Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) aircraft, the CCW-5's amazing capabilities were not fully exploited at the time. Yet, no matter how his channel wing concept fares, Willard Custer has made a significant contribution both to American aviation and folklore."
