The Piper PA-25 was originally developed by Fred Weick as the AG-3. The prototype was flown first in 1957. The AG-3 and thus the Piper PA-25 was evolved from the Texas A&M College Aircraft Research Center AG-1 Agricultural plane. Fred Weick designed the AG-1 at Texas A&M in 1950. In the design of the AG-1 crop-duster safety recommendations were incorporated, done by Hugh DeHaven and Howard Hasbrook. Deliveries of the Piper PA-25 Pawnee started in August 1959 with the PA-25-150, powered by a 150 hp Lycoming O-320 engine. Deliveries of the more powerful PA-25-235 with a 235 hp Lycoming O-540-B2B5 six-cylinder air-cooled engine began in 1962. Production of the Piper PA-25 ceased in 1982, with 5015 built.
