In going through some paperwork on Serial 1225, FAA records show that for a couple of years (1932 – 1933) this plane was licensed “Experimental” as it was demonstrating the use of an Augustine R-4-40 engine. Elsewhere in the file, it states that it was a two-cycle air-cooled engine. At that time it was registered to a Norman P. Augustine of Buffalo New York. It is interesting that the registered owner and the engine name are the same. Anyone know about an Augustine engine?
