This volume of " U.S. CIVIL AIRCRAFT " is part of a series, which when completed, will cover all civil airplanes given an " Approved Type Certificate " by the U.S. Government in the numerical series. " The Approved Type Certificate " ( A.T.C. ) was a stamp of approval by the Civil Aviation Authority ( C.A.A. ) and is actually a charter handed down for the birth of a specific aircraft model.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Joseph P. Juptner

Joseph Paul Juptner ( December 3rd, 1913 - January 3rd, 2000 ) saw his very first airplane, a decrepit OX - 5 Standard, in 1925 at the age of 12. Childlike, he enjoyed listening to pilots' wild stories about flying, and he washed down many oil - soaked airplanes in exchange for rides. Soon he graduated to " throttle - watcher ", and studied to be a mechanic, amateur airplane designer and builder, as well as a private pilot. 


During the Second World War, holding the rank of Staff Sergeant, Joseph P. Juptner was posted as Crew Chief to a U.S.A.A.F. Fighter Group. After the war, he became partner in a flying school operation, hobby shop operator, wind tunnel model builder, and experimental machinist. 


Always interested in airplane manufacture and aviation history, he amassed a valuable collection of historical data, books, magazines, and photographs on civil aircraft. Thus, Joseph P. Juptner compiled what can be called the " Family Tree of the A.T.C. ". 


In semi - retirement on his farm in Tennessee ( United States ), he continued his study of airplane manufacture in the United States. Returning to California ( United States ), he wrote several more volumes of the set that will be the most complete record of civil aircraft manufacture in the United States since 1925. Retiring in 1976, Joseph P. Juptner devoted full time to completing this series of books.
