The Pober Junior Ace made its first flight with Captain Bud Judy at the controls. This first flight was successful and displayed the short field capabilities as well as low stall speed – ideal for small airstrips. The drawings for the airplane have full size wing rib drawings and two types of ailerons – the Friess aileron being a bit more responsive and lighter on aileron control. The indicated stall speed with one person on board is approximately 36 mpg. Indicated cruise with the Continental C-85-8 was a little over 80 mph. The Pober Junior Ace is open cockpit. The fuselage is chromoly steel tube, the tail group is chromoly steel tube and flat sheet stock to form ribs. The landing gear is chromoly tube with coil spring shocks. Wings are spruce spars and ribs. Two place side by side.
