Historical Information

Command-Aire was a manufacturing business founded by Robert B. Snowden Jr. in Little Rock in 1926. During the five years it existed, Command-Aire manufactured about three hundred airplanes. It was considered one of the leading aviation manufacturers in the United States at that time. Due to the Depression, Command-Aire was unable to sell enough airplanes to meet the company's expenses, and it closed early in 1931.
