Kinner K-5, Five-cylinder, Air-cooled, Radial Aircraft Engine
The Kinner K-5 was a popular engine for light general and sport aircraft. With the boom in civilian aviation after Charles Lindberg’s transatlantic flight the K-5 sold well. The K-5 was a rough running but reliable engine and the K-5 and its derivatives were produced in the 1,000s powering many World War II trainer aircraft. The K-5 was followed by the B-5, R-5 and R-55.
