There is no data for NC1592 in the archives of the National Air & Space Museum (NASM), Washington, DC, because it was until recently registered with the FAA, and has more recently been exported to New Zealand.

TRAVEL AIR 4000 NC1592

NC1592 visited Tucson twice. Each time it was flown by Arthur C. Nelson. Nelson's first landing was on Friday, June 29, 1934. He carried two unidentified passengers and listed their home base as Hollywood, CA. They landed at 11:30AM, eastbound from Imperial, CA to El Paso, TX. Nelson noted in the Remarks column of the Register, "Starved."

Nelson landed the second time on Thursday, July 11, 1935 at 12:30PM. He carried as passenger Esther L. Gebert (b. ca. 1898). He cited their home base as Los Angeles, CA and they were on a round-robin back to Los Angeles. He cited in the Register, "X country." On neither landing did he cite a departure date or time.

It lived a long life, and is still in existence. According to this link, NC1592 suffered an accident at Lodi, CA on July 25, 1989. It worked for Precissi Flying Services, an aerial application company. The pilot was unidentified. There were no fatalities.

According to this link, NC1592 was exported to New Zealand. The FAA record corroborates the export date as January 9, 2001. There are links from this page to photographs of 1592. It probably joins sister ship NC8192, which your Webmaster has visited in New Zealand.
