Franklin 'Airman'


Recommended Posts

Franklin is somewhat inconsistent in the use of term "Airman", which can lead to confusion.

 

"Airman" only appears on the covers of the Series 12 and 16 operator's operator's manuals and sales catalogs. Yet they still made reference to aircraft-like design of the engine in their advertising.

Thanks, Steve and Paul.  I had been wondering whether my 145 would correctly be called an Airman, as I have never seen that word in any printed material for that particular series.

There might be some clarity in the Dealer letters as to why "Airman" does not appear in '29, '30 & '31 ?  They have a lot of info that is not in the operator's manuals or sales catalogs.

 

Another term that's a bit inconsistent in it's uses is, "Transcontinent".
