I have, based on thousands of positive comments from customers
who purchased Product (4), found that the manual is a valuable tool
in helping one make the decision to build a Pietenpol Air Camper. We suggest you consider reading
Product (4) to achieve a broad scope of knowledge of the Air Camper and Sky Scout.
Product 1 Description; Original Pietenpol Air Camper Plans
Air Camper (1933 design) - Two place plane - Simple, straightforward airplane devoid of frills and built
for hard usage. Air Camper uses the Ford Model A engine. Plans include the Ford A conversion, and wood
or steel fuselage. If you are planning to use an engine lighter in weight than the Ford A (245 lb.), it is
suggested that you also purchase the supplemental Plans which elongates the fuselage in order to
accommodate the weight and balance requirements when using a lighter aircraft engine.

planes that Mr. Pietenpol built and construction notes to assist
the first time builder to better understand why it's built as it is. A good head start! Bernard wrote much

My Cousin Linda has written a book about our grandfather Bernard and his planes.
Around a year or two ago she came across boxes of old aviation letters, documents and photos that
Bernard himself had saved. Linda has turned these items into a historical and colorful book, complete with
a copy of our grandpa's own photo album.
I would recommend Linda's book to anyone interested in Pietenpol airplanes or early aviation history in
general. The book is not written in a technical fashion, so it would be interesting not only for folks who are
building their own Pietenpol, but have someone in their life that is.
The name of the book is Bernard Pietenpol, Mementos and Memories by Linda Kelly. It is
currently available on Amazon.com
