The Heath Story

This book chronicles the life of Edward Baird Heath and his famous “Parasol” kitplanes. From 1927 to 1931, thousands of air minded young Americans bought his kits, then spent countless hours handcrafting a plane in their attics and basements.

Heath's conversion of the Henderson motorcycle engine to aircraft use offered inexpensive power.

The Heath Story

Ed Heath can truly be called, “The Father of the kitplane industry”. Heath had an equally successful air racing career. The diminutive Heath Baby Bullet bested all competition in the 1928-1929 national air meets. Sadly, Ed Heath was killed while testing his latest low-wing model in 1931.

The whole story of Ed Heath and his airplanes is told in the book, The Heath Story.
