"Project Oilwings" was a research project sponsored by the American Aviation Historical Society (AAHS) to compile a history of all aircraft used by domestic gasoline and petroleum companies prior to World War II. The project was to have been a compilation of photographs, drawings, usages and dispositions of oil company aircraft, as well as of personnel, personal anecdotes, and corporate history within the years 1919-1941. The project was then to present this material in manuscript form. Announced in the fall of 1965, "Project Oilwings" was headed by project leader, David R. Winans.
