English: The Interstate Cadet is an American two-seat tandem, high wing, single engine monoplane light aircraft. Around 320 of these aircraft were produced between the years of 1941 and 1942 by the Interstate Aircraft and Engineering Corporation based in El Segundo, California. The construction techniques employed were a welded steel tube fuselage, wood (spruce) wing structure with metal ribs, and fabric covering, all of which were fairly standard in the 1940s.
Français : Biplace en tandem de sport et de tourisme, le S-1 Cadet fut dessiné par Harry Cagan (fuselage arrière), Bob Culleton (voilure) et Bob Hicks (fuselage avant et train d’atterrissage), sous la direction de Ted Woolsey, dans le cadre d’un projet pédagogique de la Wiggins Trades School. C'était un monoplan à aile haute contreventée et train classique fixe caréné. Le prototype obtint une certification de Group 2 (2-558) en 1940 mais se révéla nettement sous-motorisé durant les essais avec son moteur Continental puis Franklin de 50 ch.
