14th Family Plane Enters Contest (Apr, 1936)
14th Family Plane Enters Contest
FROM Hannibal, Mo., comes another entry in the government’s contest for a light, fool-proof family airplane. Hayden S. Campbell is the designer.
The new craft has a speed of 125 miles an hour and burns but one gallon of gasoline for every 24 miles. The motor is a standard automobile engine. In starting it is only necessary to turn on the ignition, step on the starter and wait a few moments for engine to warm up.
The interior of the cabin is much like that of an automobile. In recent tests the plane was demonstrated to be fool-proof.
