The Stinson Voyager was a 1940s American light utility monoplane built by the Stinson Aircraft Company.[1]

Development

First developed as the Stinson Model 105 in 1939, it was a high-wing three-seat braced monoplane powered by either a 75 hp Continental A-75 or an 80 hp Continental A-80-6.[1] This was developed into the Model 10 powered by a Continental A-80 piston engine.[1] The Model 10 introduced a wider cabin as well as an improved standard for the interior and finish.[1] The Model 10 was followed by the Model 10A, powered by a Franklin 4AC-99 engine and the Model 10B with a Lycoming GO-145.[1]

Six Model 10As were evaluated by the United States Army as the YO-54. The successful testing led to an order for the slightly larger and heavier O-62, later designated the L-5 Sentinel.[1]

A number of Model 105s and Model 10As were impressed into Army service as the AT-19 (later L-9).[2]

After the Second World War the type was developed as the Model 108, the prototypes being converted Model 10As.[2]
