Role Sport aircraft
National origin United States
Manufacturer Luscombe Aircraft
Designer Mischa Cantor
First flight December 1945
Number built 1

The Luscombe 10 was a single-seat sport aircraft built in the United States in 1945.[1] It was a conventional, low-wing cantilever monoplane with fixed, tailwheel undercarriage and designed for aerobatics.[2] The wings, tail unit, and engine section were all adapted from the Luscombe 8, while the fuselage centre section was an all-new design, relocating the Model 8's wings from a high to low position.[3]

Despite promising results from flight testing, Luscombe ultimately felt that there was not a sufficient market for the type, and development was halted almost immediately.[3] The sole prototype (registration NX-33337) was destroyed in 1948 for tax reasons.[4]
