The Burgess H

United Fuel Cells

The Burgess Model H (known informally as the “Model H military tractor”) first took to the skies in 1912.  Propelled by a 70 horsepower Renault motor, it measured 27.75 feet long with a wingspan of 34 and a half feet.  On March 12, 1916, the 28th Model H set an all new endurance flight record, carrying three people – including the pilot – for 7 hours and 5 minutes.  Renowned aeronautic engineer Grover Loening had modified Number 28 at the San Diego army training school two years prior.
