A Pietenpal is a home built airplane that was
desingned in the 1930'2 to be easy to build and
be powered by the Ford model A engine,
they are still being built today, a and many builders
still use the model A engine. Mr Pietenpal built a
few planes with the corvair engine and these pictures
are of a Corvair powered Piet that was built by
Mr. Green in Hilliard Fla. and has been flying for 24 years
with about 500 hours of flying time.
