Title: Culver PQ-8 and PQ-14

The Culver Cadet was a single-seat light monoplane which first flew in 1939. Civil production was curtailed due to WW2 but the aircraft found a military role as a remote-controlled target aircraft for training gunnery students. The first model was designated PQ-8, and a larger version became the PQ-14 series. Over 2,000 were eventually built.
