DGA-18 "Trainer"

 The DGA-18, according to aviation historian and author Joseph Juptner,  "was a low-winged cantilever monoplane with open cockpits for 2 in tandem. As a dual-purpose trainer for the expanded CPTP program, it offered strength and utility to handle the various phases, and it was offered with a choice of 3 different engines.  [125 horsepower Warner 'Scarab,' 145 horsepower Warner 'Super Scarab,' or the 160 horsepower Kinner R5]"
