Fairchild Caminez Engine Now in Production

FOR SOME time it has been evident that there was a strong demand for a simple, reliable, low priced, modern aircraft engine to replace the war time OX-5 engines that to date have dominated the commercial aircraft field. When in April of 1926 the Fairchild Caminez Engine Corp. first publicly flight tested its new aircraft engine, the aviation public naturally expected that at last they had a suitable light weight, air-cooled commercial engine.
