The history of Buhl Aircraft made in Marysville
Lecture at the Wills Sainte Claire Auto Museum
The Wills Sainte Claire Auto Museum is proud to present an entertaining and interesting lecture by Carl Moss about the Buhl aircraft company on Tuesday evening, September 27th, 2016 at 7:30 PM at the Wills Auto Museum located at 2408 Wills Street (Marysville Industrial Park South) in Marysville.
The Buhl Aircraft Company was founded in 1925 as part of the holdings of Detroit’s Buhl family. By the late 1920’s, the Buhl family had been on the Detroit manufacturing scene for nearly one hundred years, best known for the Buhl Stamping Company and the beautiful art‐deco Buhl building in downtown Detroit. Buhl aircraft went on to win a number of speed and endurance records and placed among the very top in events such as the Ford Reliability Tour, the National Air Races and other competitive gatherings. Models which Buhl produced include the Buhl‐Verville, Airster, Airsedan, Sport Sedan, Senior Airsedan, Standard Airsedan, and the fantastic low wing “Sport Airster” which was only prototyped. In an effort to keep the company going during the depression, the Buhl “Pup” was then designed, but like so many manufacturers, the market just wasn’t there and the Buhl Aircraft Company ceased operations in February of 1933. Carl Moss will have a fascinating lecture about this lost piece of Marysville history.
