See a 1936 Arrow Sport F at the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum. Year: 1936

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Modified Ford Flathead V-8 82HP

The idea for this airplane came from the U.S. Bureau of Air Commerce search for “everyman’s airplane” - small, inexpensive, simple and safe. Then, as now, the cost of airplane engines was high so the most effective way to rein in cost was to use a simple, reliable automobile engine. Arrow was the first to get government approval to use an automobile engine in an airplane. Modifications to the V-8 engine were so minor that nearly all parts could still be bought at local Ford dealers.
