Pilot the legendary 'Tin Goose', the Ford Tri-Motor, considered by many to be the first aircraft of the modern passenger era. Produced between 1926 and 1933, the Ford was revolutionary for the time with all-metal construction, three engines for safety and performance, large passenger cabin, flight attendant, and more. The Tri-Motor was flown by most US airlines. The Tri-Motor was the first plane to fly over the South Pole. It was the first plane used on scheduled coast to coast US service. The 4-AT was the first variant to go into production, followed by the 5-AT which boasted higher performance with three Pratt & Whitney Wasp engines.
