Training Courses in Westminster, CA
Just one look and it's obvious that the Stearman is an aircraft with nostalgic presence. It became an unexpected success during World War II, yet it is one of the least known airplanes of the war. Built mostly in the 1940's by Boeing's Stearman division in Wichita, Kansas. The aircraft was named the Kaydet. Good try! Hardly anyone called them Kaydet's, and almost everyone called them Stearman's, then and now. 8, 584 were built for the military. It goes largely unrecognized for it's contribution as the primary trainer for more U. S. WWII pilots than all other's combined.
