Welcome to the official website dedicated to the Gee Bee Sportster NC72V.

The aircraft created by the Granville Brothers are true icons of the golden age of aviation. In a few short years this small company managed to cement themselves firmly into the aviation historical record. There are few pilots and non-pilots alike who are not familiar with the name “Gee Bee” and the striking scalloped paint on these elegant aircraft.

The intent of this site is to give exclusive attention to one aircraft and the people who were part of its history: the fourth and the last Model E Sportster built, Serial #8 AKA: NC72V.
