The Cavalier was manufactured by the Star Aircraft Corporation in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. The famous William D. "Billy" Parker was the general manager through out the company's existence. Competing for sales with the popular Monocoupe line of airplanes, the Cavalier was designed as a more rugged aircraft. Philips Petroleum, who backed the Star Corporation, used many of the little monoplanes to fly into unimproved oil drilling sites. This particular Cavalier Model B was chosen to be used to advertise the Star line of aircraft and was painted like and flown on a good will tour with the famous Travel Air 5000 "Woolaroc". The "Woolaroc" won the famous Dole race from San Francisco to Hawaii. The picture above is an actual photograph of the museum's Cavalier Model B taken in 1929. This aircraft is one of only a few Cavaliers to survive, it currently in storage but will be restored to original flying condition in the future.
