A quote from Bernard H. Pietenpol - Cherry Grove, Minnesota - 1928

"PIETENPOL AIR CAMPER . . The Original Model A Powered Light Plane - Designed to get the best possible performance from a Model A motor, to be easy to fly, and to get the most flying hours for the money invested."

The Pietenpol Air Camper continues to be a successful design for the same reasons homebuilders were so fascinated by the design 85 years ago. It still has graceful styling, predictable flying qualities, and easy construction.

"Bernard Pietenpol never lost sight of the cost of flying and showed his true genius in keeping the construction cost down - and within reach of the common man."
