In the late 1970s and early 1980s Jerry Dietrick, owner of the type certificate of the Windecker Eagle, based his operation out of a small airport near Cincinnati, Ohio — Harrison Airport, I67. Together with Pat Kern, Jerry Dietrick travelled the world promoting the Windecker Eagle project. It was Jerry Dietrick’s dream to put the airplane back into production. He formed the Composite Aircraft Corporation after securing the production rights for the Windecker Eagle. He also owned two — and at one time, three — Eagles.
