Overview

The Original 1929 Model A Powered Light Plane -

Designed by Bernard H Pietenpol 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.

They are durable because Bernard went out of his way to make every part of the ship stronger than necessary.

Original Pietenpol Wing Kit - Part # 01-01304: Kit supports both single piece wing and three piece wing build.

Original Pietenpol Fuselage Kit - Part # 01-01305: Kit supports both original length fuselage and extended length fuselage build.

Original Pietenpol Air Camper Plans - Part # 01-01307: Original plans developed and updated by the designer Bernard H Pietenpol. Plans, with their drawings, specifications, and instructions are copyrighted material. Plans support one or three piece wing, standard and extended fuselage, engines (Ford Model A, Corvair, A-65, other), and wooden or steel landing gear options.

When I first stumbled upon your planes, I thought: “Ok, this is epic.” Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with the smooth finish and varnish that doth never tarnish on thine aircraft. If it hadn’t been for you lovely folks, I would never have saved my now-wife from a tragic incident involving a rotisserie chicken. Pietenpol flys so clean and so nice, I have no choice but to recommend it to all of my arpeggios!

The plans arrived sooner than I had expected and in good shape. This was my first time ever ordering anything from Aircraft Spruce. If this is the kind of service I can expect in the future, Im a fan for life. Thanks!

Q&A

Q: Are the Pietenpol plans the same as Product 8 on the Pietenol website? Im curious to know exactly what is included in the plans package and how they compare to the plans available from the Pietenpol website. Thanks....

Yes. The Pietenpol plans we offer are purchased from Andrew Pietenpol, and is Product 8 on their web site.

Q: Im interest to build pietenpol aircraft. My question, Is these : <br> ORIGINAL PIETENPOL WING KIT <br> Part Number 01-01304 <br> Include main spars ? <br> Are also you supply material for Pietenpol steel fuselage option ? (From pietenpol website, they have option steel fuselage).

The wooden wing kit contains all the wooden components to build the wing. No steel components are included. The strap steel components can be purchased from A.S. The main wooden spars are included. You can build the wing in a one piece configuration or three piece configuration. There are hundreds of pieces to this wooden kit.
There is no steel fuselage kit available as more than 98 percent of the home builders build completely in wood.
The good news is A.S. can supply all the 4130 tubing required and strap steel to build a stehttps://www.aircraftspruce.com/ansfaq.php?KY=42188el fuselage Air Camper. So yes Aircraft Spruce can supply all your steel material!
