The Super Chief was basically the same configuration as the Model KM, but with expanded structural changes. Its gross weight was increased to 1,250 pounds, and it had 17-gallon fuel tank. Its cruising range was 350 miles. With an auxiliary fuel tank, cruising range expanded to 500 miles.

Fuselage structure consisted of four longerons to the rear of cabin and three longerons aft, with chrome-molybdenum steel tubing used in primary members.

The wheels were equipped with brakes, operated through a Bowden wire to the lever control in the cabin. Large full-skirted aluminum fairings formed classic wheel coverings.
