The Harlow PC-5 was a 1930s American military trainer version of the PJC-2 designed and built by the Harlow Aircraft Company.

Development

The Harlow Aircraft Company designed a version of the PJC-2 as a tandem two-seat training aircraft. The PC-5 had a revised fuselage with dual controls. The aircraft first flew in July 1939 but it failed to interest the United States Army Air Corps. Only five aircraft had been built when the company was taken over by the Intercontinent Corporation. Components for 50 aircraft were supplied to the Indian company Hindustan Aeronautics, who were to assemble the aircraft for use by the Indian Air Force as the PC-5A. The first PC-5A flew in August 1941 but it is not known how many were assembled and flown.

Using an engineering team brought in by Intercontinental a cheaper version of the PC-5 was developed and built as the PC-6. The PC-6 wing failed causing a fatal accident during an early test flight
