The Meyers Aircraft Owners Association annual Fly-In will be held at Flabob on June 10-13, 2009. We are hoping to have 15-20 Meyers 200s, several Meyers OTWs, and one or two Meyers 145s.

These are the three airplanes produced by Al Meyers and his company in Tecumseh, Michigan, from the 1930s to 1965. At that time the Meyers 200 was sold to Aero Commander and produced for two more years as the Aero Commander 200. After Aero Commander discontinued production, all models have reverted to being called "Meyers."
Here is a link to a history of the Meyers airplanes.
The 200 was sold to a company which produced the first certificated pressurized turboprop single, the Meyers 400 or "Interceptor." One prototype exists. It will true at 300 kt at 24,000 feet.
During the Aero Commander era, the factory made a push in air racing. The result was the end of civilian stockplane races, because Beech, Cessna, and Piper tired of looking at the back end of Meyers 200s and dropped out of racing.
