The Rose Parrakeet A-1 Production Prototype
According to FAA registration documents, Jack Rose applied for a temporary experimental registration number (NX13677) for Rose Parrakeet S/N 101 on 2 August 1934.  On 8 November, 1935 Rose received Type Certificate 2-514 approval from the CAA and began commercial production.  In November 1935, NC13677 was sold to B.J Colleran of Chicago, Illinois. 

Doug Rhinehart purchased this aircraft in June 1967 and started restoration.  In 1973 he began the registration process which took the better part of three years as he was required to establish and document it's chain of ownership and registration. NC13677's N-number had long since been reassigned.  In January 1976, it was registered as NC1367G.

Although a second original restoration is in progress on NC14866, to date, NC1367G is the only completely original Rose Parrakeet A-1 with Continental A-40-4 engine (S/N 151) and tail skid as restored by Doug Rhinehart.  (Don Gillmore)

Reprinted from AAA/APM web site
Few visitors to Antique Airfield during Annual AAA-APM Fly-lns will ever forget the aerobatic demonstrations by the late Doug Rhinehart of Farmington, New Mexico in his Rose-Rhinehart Parrakeets.

Doug rebuilt this early model Parrakeet and it had been on loan to various pilots in the Southwest.  Several years ago, at the Casa Grande Fly-ln, Doug Rhinehart had all the visiting pilots write their names on the silver finish of the lower wings. This feature will remain an important part of this airplane, now displayed in the Airpower Museum.

N-1367G was donated by Mrs. Doug Rhinehart of Farmington, New Mexico in the memory of her husband, Doug, whose name was of course, synonymous with the revival of the Rose design and production of at least five new Rose-Rhinehart Parrakeets.

This famous design originated by Jack Rose, AAA M-8037, has never lost its popularity over the years and the design continues to be copied, emulated, and pursued in various fashions by many who have been captivated by this diminutive biplane with such fine flying characteristics.

Our thanks to the Rhinehart family for this contribution. This gift will do a great deal to maintain the Airpower Museum as a museum by and for its membership.
