Curtiss-Wright CW-15 Sedan was a four-seat utility aircraft produced in small numbers in the United States in the early 1930s. It was a braced high-wing monoplane with conventional tailwheel landing gear with a fully enclosed cabin, superficially resembling the Travel Air 10. At the time of the CW-15's design, Travel Air had recently been acquired by Curtiss-Wright.
