Overview 2

The Arrow Sport was a two-seat sporting biplane aircraft built in the United States in the 1920s and 1930s.

Design and Construction 2

It was of largely conventional configuration with tail skid undercarriage, but was interesting in that the pilot and passenger sat side-by-side in the open cockpit, and because as originally designed, the fully cantilever wings lacked interplane struts - the upper wing attaching directly to the top of the fuselage. This latter feature proved so alarming to many prospective pilots that the manufacturer later supplied N-type struts that were of no real function other than to allay the aviators’ fears.

Survivors 2

Several Sport aircraft are currently flying in the United States in 2009. Nine Sports are preserved in U.S. museums and collections including an example of the A2-60 variant at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC.
