The Yankee began in 1963 as the BD-1. Designed by Jim Bede as a simple and affordable airplane with removable wings, able to be towed home and parked in a garage. Redesigned to allow certification for production, the company ran into money trouble. Mr. Bede was ousted from the company which was re-named American Aviation and the aircraft emerged was the AA-1 Yankee Clipper. This 1969 built example came to Canada in 1975.
