The Ace K-1 was a United States single-seat biplane aircraft designed in 1919 by Alexander Klemin, then Professor of Aeronautical Engineering at New York University (NYU). Later versions included a nearly faired-in engine installation. Re-introduced in 1930 with a re-designed fuselage and strengthened structure as the Ace 300 and Ace 200, fitted with Salmson 9Ad and LeBlond 5D engines respectively.
Famous quotes containing the word ace:
“I do not object to Gladstones always having the ace of trumps up his sleeve, but only to his pretence that God had put it there.”
—Henry Labouchere (18311912)
