The American Eagle Aircraft Corporation was an American aircraft design and manufacturing company which existed briefly in Kansas, but which was a victim of the Great Depression, after building some 500 light airplanes, many of which were the Model A-129, a design attributed to noted aviation pioneer Giuseppe Mario Bellanca. Late in 1929, the worldwide stock market crash severely depressed the sale of non-essential items such as sport airplanes, although American Eagle continued producing airplanes until 1931.

Rare and historic aviation certificate. In July of 1929 Clarence Chamberlain, president, attempted to set a new endurance record. His plane was a Crescent monoplane retrofitted to make fueling contacts with a Goebel Chamberlain ship. The prospect for an airport in Jersey City came about after the transatlantic flights of Charles Lindbergh and the interest of a little-known transatlantic aviator Clarence D. Chamberlin in 1927. Chamberlin came into Jersey City to advance the new air travel industry with his airplane manufacturing plant and flight school, known as Crescent Aircraft Corporation, at Droyers Point. Chamberlin became a representative of the Jersey City Chamber of Congress and was named manager of the airport project.Est. $80-160
