1929 Paramount Cabinaire
The Paramount Cabinaire was an interesting example in a small family-type airplane; trim, and very compact, it didn't have that big expensive look, and seems to be a craft one would thoroughly enjoy owning and flying around the home port. Quite proud of the Cabinaire and rightfully so, Walter Carr, designer, demonstrated its ability on every opportunity. As a contestant in the hard-fought National Air Tour for 1930, he flew the Cabinaire model 165 to 15th place amongst a very determined field.
This Cabinaire held construction number (C/N) 7 and was built in 1929. It has the original Wright Model 540, 5 cylinder 165 hp engine, with registration N17M.
The fuselage framework was of welded steel tubing, wings of laminated spruce spar beams; the complete framework was covered with fabric. There were apparently 9 manufactured before the company failed during the great Depression and closed its doors in June of 1932.
