Jacobs Aircraft Engines
Jacobs Aircraft Engines. Research Magazine Advertisements. The Best Resource on the Net of Vintage Ads! (1943) The last frontier of the vast Northlands has been opened. Civilization and Man's ingenuity are spreading their wings to the far reaches of these rugged lands of Canada and Alaska. The Wild is being tamed. The men and women of Jacobs are very proud of the part their products have played in this pioneering. Today, military needs swallow all aircraft production, and Jacobs' output, multiplied many times, is powering the majority of the Bomber Pilot Trainers of the huge US Army Air Forces' training program and Canada's Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The Jacobs Aircraft Engine Company was formed in 1929 in Philadelphia. Later the company moved to Pottstown, Pennsylvania after purchasing the machine workshop of the Light Manufacturing and Foundry Company. Jacobs engines were fitted to many US-built aircraft of the inter-war period, including several Waco models. They were in use in 26 different countries including in Canada, where 330 horsepower L6-MB engines were used to power the Royal Canadian Air Force's Avro Anson Mk. II aircraft. In 1941 the American War Department gave the contract to Jacobs to produce Pratt & Whitney R-985 and R-1340 engines until 1945. Jacobs ranked 87th among United States corporations in the value of World War II military production contracts. After World War II, Jacobs became a division of Republic Industries (not Republic Aircraft). Enjoy these vintage ads for Jacobs Aircraft Engines while you browse through our Advertisement Gallery!
