The 2-22 was introduced in 1945 and became (until superseded by the 2-23) the most used two- place trainer in America. It was derived from the SGU 1-7 and developed through A, B, C, D and E models. The original 2-22 had a 204 kg/ 450 lb. Empty weight and 377 kg./ 830 lb gross with no rear side windows and no doors. The A (3 built) was a redesign for the U.S. Air Force Academy with lengthened nose, full canopy and 409 kg/ 900 lb gross weight. The B is the original modified for 409 kg./ 900 lb gross weight. The C incorporated the A and B changes plus smaller ailerons; 103 built, including 28 kits (described as the 2-22CK). The D is the orinal model with small ailerons. The E was the last production model, with larger spoilers, roomier cockpit, new canopy with wing root changes to provide for a skylight. Specifications are for the 2-22E. ATC
