The Sedan was the Luscombe Company’s entry into the medium-performance four-place general aviation market. Powered by a 165 hp Continental engine, the rugged 11-A was capable of rough-field operations, although it did exhibit some strange landing characteristics. The airplane had an elevator travel-limiter that kept the pilot from reaching critical angle of attack and stalling. Although the travel-limiter did prevent spins, it also made it hard to arrest the high sink rate usually associated with power-off full-stall approaches and landings. Therefore, since the aircraft is best flown at a flat angle, wheel landings seem to be the safest way to go. The original market thrust for the Sedan had been in the flying-farmer field, but sales just didn’t materialize. So Luscombe dressed up the Sedan and detailed its interior to attract family-airplane consumers. The effort was largely wasted, however, as sales increased very little. Today the Model 11-A is quite uncommon and is mostly seen at airshows or fly-ins.
