Ad: Private “air truck” for Very Special Delivery (Sep, 1954)
Private “air truck” for Very Special Delivery … powered by Lycoming
When deliveries are Rush with a capital “R” … today’s progressive businessman turns to a small company plane that relieves him of dependence on the schedules of commercial air-freight systems.
Take the case of the Capital City Printing Plate Company of Des Moines, Iowa … operator of a Piper Tri-Pacer powered by Lycoming. Gene C. Meston, General Manager, says: “We could not maintain our production and sales level without the Tri-Pacer. The airplane and the pilot do the work of two trucks and three drivers. We save a lot of expense and keep our customers well satisfied.”
Our own experience at Lycoming with the Tri-Pacer is a revelation in dollars and cents. It carries a 500-lb. payload at an operating cost of only 5.6 cents per mile … less than the average cost of running an automobile!
For the “air truck” in your future, test-fly a Piper … or one of the other leaders in this small-plane field that fly with dependable Lycoming air-cooled engines.
