The Mohawk M1C (variously named Pinto, Redskin or Spurwing) was a 1920s American two or three-seat low-wing monoplane designed and built by Mohawk Aero Corporation of Minneapolis, Minnesota. One M1C was evaluated by the United States Army Air Corps in 1930 as the YPT-7 Pinto for use as a primary trainer.[1]

Design and development

The M1C was a three-seat low-wing cantilever monoplane which was available with an open cockpit (as the Pinto) and enclosed cockpit (as the Redskin).[1] The first variant was the M1C-K powered by a 100 hp (75 kW) Kinner K-5 or a 100 hp (75 kW) Wright engine.[1] One aircraft was modified for evaluation by the United States Army Air Corps as the YPT-7 Pinto.[1][2]

A two-seat variant the M1C-W was also produced with a 110 hp (82 kW) Warner Scarab engine.[1] The first one was the aircraft evaluated by the Army and re-engined. In 1930 the company went bankrupt and was taken over by the R R Rand Jr.[1]
