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. They are durable because Bernard went out of his way to make every part of the ship stronger than necessary. Kit supports both single piece wing and three piece wing build. Kit supports both original length fuselage and extended length fuselage build.
