Our Vintage Airplane Ad of the Week from January of 1930 calls out to sportsmen with highlights of the Stearman!

Welcome to our new Monday feature, Project of the Week!

Our first entry belongs to 19 year old Connor Flynn. This 1929 Spartan C3-5 serial number 133, later designated as a C3-165, would have been powered by a Wright J-6-5 radial engine. Connor acquired this rare aircraft from a fellow mechanic friend of his in August of this year. It is based at New Garden Flying Field in Pennsylvania. If anyone has any information on the Spartan biplane, feel free to reach out to Connor and help him get this aircraft back in the air.

Recently we've noticed a wave of spam ads posted in response to comments people have made on our posts. Not only do these ads show merchandise that is in no way connected to VAA, clicking the link will take you to a website that is NOT affiliated with The Vintage Aircraft Association or EAA. Clicking the link and ESPECIALLY entering any payment information could very likely be dangerous.

We're working to remove these ads as well as block the posters from the VAA Facebook page, however we're not able to monitor the situation 24/7. There have been multiple "users" posting the ads, and it seems that new user accounts are created on a regular basis.

Please know that any online merchandise sales will be posted ONLY by the EAA - Vintage Aircraft Association account, and not an individual Facebook user.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
