Fairchild Model 24 Drawings
NASM Accession No. XXXX-0430
The Fairchild (Kreider-Reisner) Model 24 was a single-engined,
two-, three-, or four-place, high-wing cabin monoplane with conventional
landing gear designed for the private aviation market. The aircraft, initially
designed by the Kreider-Reisner Aircraft Co, Inc (later a division of
Fairchild Aviation Corporation) of Hagerstown, MD, was first introduced
at the Detroit Air Show in 1932 and received its Civil Aeronautics Authority
Approved Type Certificate in April. Over the next fifteen years the Model
24 went through seventeen different models of increasing power and payload
with both radial and in-line engine versions. Always a popular aircraft,
production of the Model 24 was only suspended in 1942, when the Federal
government closed down all civil aircraft production because of the war.
The Texas Engineering and Manufacturing Company (Temco) of Dallas, TX
resumed Model 24 manufacture in 1946, after Fairchild failed to do so,
but finally stopped all production for good due to the postwar aviation
market slump in 1948.
The collection consists of two sections: 1) Copies of
Fairchild's original drawing lists for the various models in the Fairchild
24 series. 2) Approximately 4,200 individual original pencil and paper
component engineering drawings for the Fairchild 24 series. This section
also contains sepia copies of some originals, and multiple revisions for
some drawings. The collection DOES NOT include ALL the drawings for
any one model in the Fairchild 24 series.
