A young Sherman Fairchild quit college in 1917 to start a company to build aerial cameras. After 3 years, Fairchild built the first successful large, high-speed between-the-shutter camera that was a major breakthrough in aerial photographic technology. Having started an aerial photographic and mapping company, Fairchild found airplanes of the day not suitable for the photographic mission. Sherman Fairchild decided to build one himself.

During the design of the plane, Fairchild decided to build a multi-purpose plane suitable for other piloting needs and to market these airplanes to the public.

Fairchild Aviation Corporation was based in Farmingdale, New York. Fairchild moved to Hagerstown, Maryland in 1931.

Fairchild was the founder of Fairchild Aviation Corp. and Fairchild Aircraft Manufacturing Company. Through the years of manufacturing civilian and military aircraft, Fairchild would employ more than 50,000 men and women. The details are told within the pages of the book, Fairchild's Golden Age.
