I had occasion to fly one of these in the mid fifties. It was a good performing airplane. Instead of rudder pedals there was a thing called a Johnson Bar. I am not sure if this was standard equipment on all C-165's or not.

A friend of mine, Bill Koelling, in Great Bend, Ks, has one of these and flys it regularly. I fly in it when I get the chance, and it's shown at every Airshow in Great Bend.

This type aircraft was used by Aero Service Co. of Philadelphia for aerial mapping of Western Pa. out of DuBois, Pa. in the late thirties.

I have a scale model of this aircraft built by my late father and is perfect in every detail. G-AEAI built in 1953 and won him model engineer of the year award. I am now looking to sell this model.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
