: "The Air Master was an original homebuilt design of Jerry J. Stallings and the type was planned to become available (ultimately) in kit form, although initially only plans were made available. The design was reportedly influenced by the Lancair 320, but was built of different composite materials and had several major differences. The first and sole example was built by the designer, possibly together with M.D. Kraft and powered by an 150 hp Lycoming O-320 engine it was first flown during 1994. The type was suitable for engines in the 150 to 200 hp range, and from 1995 was marketed via Airplane Builders Company, founded by the designer. However, development halted when the prototype aircraft was lost in a crash on July 25, 1996, killing the designer and his passenger. An Air Master 2 with registration N10AX was never completed."
