  the MID-ATLANTIC AIR MUSEUM STORE :: VIDEO - CD - DVD :: Flight Training Starring the PT-17 Stearman - 2 DVD Set

  Flight Training Starring the PT-17 Stearman - 2 DVD Set #16684
Flight Training Starring the PT-17 Stearman - 2 DVD Set  This is a 2-DVD set of WWII Vintage films covering US Navy Basic Flight Training, utilizing the Boeing Stearman PT-17.

This 9-part series was produced in 1944-45 by the US Navy to accompany the primary flight training curriculum. These films cover the basics of flying a propeller-driven airplane, and are a fantastic introduction to "Aviation 101". Produced, Directed and Hosted by USNR Lt. Robert "Bob" Taylor, a famous Hollywood star of the era, this series covers all the essentials, from pre-flight planning through takeoffs, landings, attitudes for flight, and ground reference maneuvers. If I were still working as a full-time flight instructor, this is a series I would keep in my teaching library for students who are interested in classic aviation. In addition to some thorough and understandable "chalk talk", this series also contains some rare in-cockpit footage, and some great shots of the interior of the "Yellow Peril", which is now one of the most sought-after classic warbirds around.

The films are:

Film 1: "Flying Sense" (B&W, 24:17)
Film 2: "Before You Fly" (B&W, 34:47)
Film 3: "First Flight Part I" (B&W, 13:52)
Film 4: "First Flight Part II" (B&W, 12:43)
Film 5: "Attitudes of Flight" (B&W, 16:06)
Film 6: "Taxiing and Take-Offs (B&W, 19:04)
Film 7: "Landings" (B&W,13:13)
Film 8: "Race Track Patterns, Part I" (B&W, 21:54)
Film 9: "Race Track Patterns, Part II" (B&W, 25:01)
