Pt-17-boeing

Boeing Stearman PT-17

was the preferred primary trainer used by the U.S. Army Air Corp and U.S. Navy during World War II. It is a very rugged open cockpit biplane in the conventional gear configuration (tailwheel). The PT-17 is powered by a 220 horsepower 7-cylinder radial engine manufactured by Continental Engine Company, which remains in business providing new aircraft engines for current production aircraft. Most WWII pilots earned their wings in the PT-17 after completing a comprehensive flight syllabus inclusive of aerobatics and ground referenced navigation (pilotage). The PT-17 used by BiPane FunFlights was manufactured in 1941.
