Champion (Aeronca) 7FC Tri Traveler   N9839Y                   (c/n  7FC-451)


                                      In 1951 the Aeronca Aircraft Co sold the production rights of its ubiquitous Model 7AC through
                                      7DC Champion line (of which some 7,000 had been manufactured) to a new company formed to
                                      continue production. Although named Champion Aircraft Co, this company discontinued the original
                                      Champion name and produced the new Traveler series.  In an effort to pander to the tricycle landing
                                      gear set, the above version was also produced.  This machine is seen when new at Fullerton Muni-
                                      cipal Airport in November of 1962.
