It doesn’t look like a T6 to me. The thing I find odd is that dook has confirmed it is an American aircraft, but in the back seat is a British TR1154 LF/HF transmitter, mainly used in bombers.




Very very close with the T6
Is this a “single-engined Mosquito”?

I believe it is another American University. The type was used in Canada from French stocks as airborne radio operator trainers. Since the previous devices were Menasco powered Tiger Moths, I would imagine the feelings of sophistication (if not warmth) in the trainees would be rather strong. Although the bored pilots, without even a landing gear lever to play with, might not have shared that same feeling.

I think Jamesl has it - the NA-64 Yale, specifically the ones destined for France but ended up in the RCAF. I had considered it and when I looked it up on Wikipedia, I was so intrigued by the section on changing the throttle and mixture controls, that I missed the preceding sentence:

They were then relegated for use as airborne wireless radio trainers ...
That would explain the British radio.

Although he didn't say the name, Jamesal did say "university".and I think he knows the answer. He also sid airborne radio operator trainers.

As I42 has said, it is the NA-64 Yale,

To be fair, I think the prize must go to Jamesal who now has the thread.

Sorry, been out for a while. Not an LSA. You wouldn't move this with a Rotax.

That's the one Bear. Not many left. Flew one on air test some years back. More original than the one in the pic. Bear has control

Looks like a glass nose and I can't see any controls.

Experimental maybe ?
