The Harlow PJC-2 was a 1930s American four-seat cabin monoplane aircraft, designed by Max Harlow.

Development

Max Harlow was an aeronautical engineer and instructor at the Pasadena Junior College. Under his tutelage, the aircraft designated PJC-1 was designed as a class project. The PJC-1 first flew on 14 September 1937 but it crashed during a spin test as it was going through the certification process. Harlow saw the potential and formed the Harlow Aircraft Company to build the aircraft at Alhambra Airport as the PJC-2. The PJC-2 was an all-metal low-wing cantilever monoplane with conventional low-set tailplane and a retractable tailwheel landing gear. A tandem two-seat version was developed as the Harlow PC-5.

Four aircraft were impressed into United States Army Air Force service with the designation UC-80 in 1942.
