   Компания "Compania de Aviacion Faucett S. А." была образована в Перу 15 сентября 1928 года (со штаб-квартирой в Лиме). Старейшая перуанская авиакомпания существует до сих пор. В начале 1930-х годов компания "Faucett" основала мастерские для ремонта и восстановления собственных самолетов и самолетов других компаний, работающих в Перу. Через несколько лет компания приняла решение о разработке самолетов своей конструкции для собственных нужд.
   Под требования "Faucett" был спроектирован на основе Stinson Detroiter самолет Faucett F-19. Экипаж состоял из двух человек, самолет мог перевозить шесть пассажиров и был оснащен звездообразным мотором Pratt & Whitney Hornet, но для гидроварианта предусматривалась установка менее мощного 600-сильного мотора Pratt & Whitney Wasp S1H1-G.
   Первые серийные машины поступили в "Faucett", но затем несколько машин закупило правительство Перу, последний самолет собрали в 1947 году.

Stinson-Faucett F-19 OB-R-147 has been preserved and restored in the vivid markings of the F-10 flown by Armando Revoredo Iglesias during his 1937 South American record-setting flight, and put on display at Jorge Chavez International Airport at Callao, west of Lima. Curiously, it appears that the team responsible for the aircraft’s latest restoration has mistaken the last letter of the original’s OA-BBQ registration for an “O”, although the number, 17, is correct.

In 1934 Faucett’s engineering department began work on developing a larger, stronger and easier to maintain version of the Stinson SM-6B, resulting in the Faucett F-10, of which a total of 12 was built. This head-on shot of an F-10 at the company’s Santa Cruz airfield in December 1936 shows its robust wide-track undercarriage.
A group of ladies pose with Elmer Faucett (in cockpit) beside the first Faucett F-10, OA-BBI, fitted with a distinctive forward-raked windscreen, a design feature much in vogue in the mid-1930s; the benefits of such an arrangement have long been a subject of discussion, and probably made little or no difference to performance.
The prototype F-10, OA-BBI, was painted a vivid orange, to make it easily visible should it have to make a forced landing in the jungle, and given fleet number 9. The prototype, actually a much modified Stinson SM-6B, made its maiden flight on September 20, 1934, in the hands of the company’s chief test pilot, Gale Alexander.
The eighth production Stinson-Faucett F-10, OA-BBQ/No 17, flies over the San Isidro district of Lima in the hands of Lt-Col Armando Revoredo Iglesias on his return to the Peruvian capital after his record-setting flight from Lima to Santiago in Chile, Buenos Aires in Argentina, Montevideo in Uruguay and back to Lima in early 1937.
During March-April 1937 Lt-Col Armando Revoredo Iglesias made a much-celebrated long-distance flight from Lima to Buenos Aires in Argentina and back in F-10 OA-BBQ/No 17, seen here at Santa Cruz airfield beside other Faucett aircraft sometime after 1940, when the OB- registration prefix replaced the previous OA- prefix.
Passengers await the loading of their luggage aboard F-10 OA-BBT/No 20 at Santa Cruz in 1942. By 1945 the privately-owned airfield had modern hangars, workshops, radio equipment and a car service that ran passengers to their destinations in Lima.

The 27th Stinson-Faucett built, F-19 OB-R-143, was photographed in a hangar at Limatambo in the late 1960s, when the type was still very much in service. Peru’s civil registration system was originally prefixed with OA- until around 1940, when it was changed to OB-; in 1964 it then became OB-R- followed by three numbers.
Another interesting line-up, this time at San Ramon in July 1942. Nearest the camera is a CAP F-19, serial 24-1-4, with engine running. Next in line is a US Marine Corps Grumman J2F Duck, beyond which is a Barkley-Grow T8P-1 of the CAP’S No 29 Escuadron Comando. At the furthest end are a Beech C-45 of the Mision Americana de Aviacion (American Aviation Mission) anf F-19 OA-BBW/No 23.
This close-up highlights the sturdy under­carriage and low-pressure tyres fitted to the F-19, as well as the hold in the fuselage, the door panels of which are seen open, the forward hold having a capacity of 250lb (115kg), the rear being capable of holding 200lb (92kg) of luggage and/or mail.

A peaceful image of an unidentified float-equipped F-19 at the seaplane base at Ancon in northern Lima Province, where it underwent testing after its delivery to the CAP in 1943. The floatplane version was fitted with the more powerful Pratt & Whitney Hornet nine-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, in contrast to the landplane’s P&W Wasp.
