Biographical / Historical:
Travel Air Company was founded in Wichita, KS, in 1925 by Walter Beech, Llloyd Stearman, and Clyde Cessna. Although Stearman and Cessna left in 1927 to found Stearman Company and Cessna Aircraft Company, respectively, by 1929, Travel Air was the largest producer of commercial aircraft in the United States. In that year Travel Air was bought by Curtiss Wright Corp., but it continued to expand as a division of Curtiss Wright. Beech left the firm in 1932 to found Beech Aircraft and Travel Air was eventually absorbed into the larger manufacturer.
