Loving-Wayne WR-2

06/30/2009. Neal V. Loving (February 4, 1916-December 19, 1998), co-owner of glider manufacturer Wayne Aircraft Company, Detroit, Michigan, USA, designed his second aircraft to compete in the EAA's 1960 Design Contest. Requirements of this contest included suitability for amateur construction, and the ability to be towed behind a motor car at speeds up to 45 mph (72 kmh) with (as pictured) wings folded.

The aircraft accommodated a pilot and passengers in seats staggered 6 in (0.15 m) to improve comfort and pilot visibility. Powered by an 85 hp Continental C-85 pusher engine, the aircraft was registered N112Y on September 13, 1960. The registration was cancelled May 18, 1965, due to certain design characteristics the aircraft was scrapped by Loving.
