Culver PQ-14B Cadet

A picture of the Culver PG-14B Cadet

In 1940, the Culver company was awarded a contract by the U.S. Army for a target drone aircraft based on their Cadet civilian light aircraft.  Designated the PQ-8 it proved to be very successful and led to the development of the slightly larger and faster PQ-14.  These all-wood drones were used throughout the United States to train both Army and Navy anti-aircraft gunners.  Being descended from a piloted aircraft the PQ-14 could be flown either by remote control or by a pilot.  Naturally, pilots never flew the aircraft when they were being shot at from the ground.  After the war many of the surviving PQ-14s had the remote-control equipment removed and were sold on the civilian market.
