The S-42 was a commercial flying boat designed and built by Sikorsky Aircraft. The S-42 was designed during the 1930s for Pan Am Airlines; they were looking for a long-range transatlantic flying boat. The S-42 design was based on the earlier Sikorsky S-40; the new design provided for an increased lifting capacity to carry enough fuel for a 2,500 mi nonstop flight against a 30 mph wind. A total of 10 S-42s were built, and they only flew with Pan Am. This specific model is painted in the Pan Am paint scheme. Pan American World Airways was founded in 1927 as a scheduled air mail and passenger service operating between Key West FL and Havana, Cuba. The airline has become a major company credited with many innovations that shaped the international airline industry, including the widespread use of jet aircraft, jumbo jets, and computerized reservation systems.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
