Design and development
The Eberman Monoplane was built in Geneva, Illinois.
The Eberman Monoplane was a high-wing conventional landing gear-equipped aircraft with an open cockpit. The wings used fir spars with steel lift struts. The fuselage was all wood. The ailerons were controlled with a push-pull tube. The tail surfaces were welded steel tubing with aircraft fabric covering.
The aircraft flew for 105 minutes total before its first engine failure. A 1928 Anzani engine was installed as a replacement which subsequently failed after 12 hours.
