New Pietenpol Family website

Builders,

We received a note from Andrew Pietenpol, Grandson of Bernard, that he has assembled a new official Pietenpol family website. I have spent a lot of time looking at it and it has a lot of information I had not seen before. Obviously, Andrew is the direct living legacy of his grandfather, and our best resource to learn more about the life, ideals and designs of ‘The patron saint of homebuilding”.

.

Even if you are not a Pietenpol builder, an hour on the site will give you a much sharper understanding of the origins of homebuilding in the United States, which came at a time of extreme economic challenge. Of all the creative men involved, Bernard Pietenpol’s designs are the only ones still being built nearly 90 years later.

Andrew Pietenpol, aviator and Grandson of BHP, right, attends Corvair College #4 with Grace and Myself in 2003. Greatest complement anyone has ever said to me in 26 years in aviation: Andrew told me that day “My Grandfather would have adopted you.”
