The Stinson Reliant was
developed out of the previously successful Stinson SM series Model R
(of 1932) and Model S (of 1930/1).
Successive refinements of the design were made resulting in
models ranging from the SR-1 to the SR-10F.
1937 saw the introduction of the now familiar double
wing. The above model 9B is typical. It is seen at Camarillo
Airport in Southern California
in 2000. The engine is a 245 hp Lycoming R-680-6.
