A Passion For Flight

In 1993, Larry French took his obsession for airplanes and embarked on a journey to create a modernized version of the 1930s-era Beechcraft Model 17 Staggerwing. The result? A new vintage-style airplane called Lionheart—and the birth of a brand-new company, Griffon Aerospace.

A Lionhearted Legend.
