Distributed by King Features Syndicate, the strip ran as a Sunday page from at least 1933 to 1939 (the final strip is dated 7 July 1939). According to Rickenbacker's autobiography, at its peak, the strip ran in 135 newspapers.
In 1936, the strip was adapted into a movie serial. Rickenbacker was a key factor in the promotion of this strip through the formation of Eddie Rickenbacker's Junior Pilots Club, displaying the Ace Drummond characters on buttons distributed to listeners.
