The Air-Cam returns to the big show this year with a new owner.
Lockwood Aircraft, a new company formed by Phil Lockwood, owner of Lockwood Aviation Supply, will exhibit the Air-Cam and the Drifter light aircraft during this year’s AirVenture, later this month.
Lockwood Aircraft will display both land and amphibious versions of the twin-engine homebuilt, according to company officials.
The AirVenture display signals the return of the Air-Cam to the leadership of Phil Lockwood, whose team created the iconic aircraft under contract from the National Geographic Society more than a decade ago. For several years the airplane languished under the business name Leza Aircraft, but earlier this year Lockwood completed a deal to purchase all design rights, inventory and tooling from the prior owner, Antonio Leza. All components are now housed in new quarters at Lockwood’s location at Sebring Regional Airport in Florida.
There are about 120 Air-Cams flying worldwide.
