In 1924, in conjunction with Johnson Airplane and Supply Company, built two Driggs-Johnson DJ-1 Bumblebee racers, followed by a second version in 1925. Developed Dart Model 1 for Air Corps research on high-lift wings in 1926. Driggs products included Dart II and Skylark III. Driggs left to work for Luscombe on the 1934 Phantom I, and Driggs design rights went to Phillips Aviation in 1938.
