Model Description

The Northrop Alpha was an American single-engine, all-metal, seven-seat, low-wing monoplane fast mail/passenger transport aircraft. The aircraft first flew in 1930, with a total of 17 built. The Alpha benefitted from two revolutionary aerodynamic advancements: wing fillets and a multicellular stressed-skin wing. The Alpha was the first commercial aircraft to use rubber deicer boots on wing and empennage leading edges which, in conjunction with state-of-the-art radio navigation equipment, gave it day or night, all-weather capability. The Alpha was designed by John K. Northrop, who also designed the Lockheed Vega.

This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
