The Stinson Reliant was designed as a single-engine four- to five-seat high-wing monoplane. It was manufactured by the Stinson Aircraft Division in Michigan, USA in the 1930s. Several models were manufactured with different engines. Models up to SR-6 had a straight wing and later models a gull wing. The military designation was AT-19, UC-81.

Over 1,300 Reliants were manufactured and it was quite popular.
