Boeing/Stearman PT-13/N2S-2/N2S-5 Kaydet.
The Stearman PT-13 / N2S-2 / N2S-5 Kaydet was a two-seater pilot training aircraft designed in the United States by Stearman, later to become a separate division of Boeing. The aircraft had excellent flight characteristics, was relatively easy to fly and became a real "flying school desk" for thousands and thousands of pilots. In addition to the US Army Air Forces, the aircraft was also built for the US Navy. In total, more than 350 PT-13 units and more than 1,500 of the N2S-2 and N2S-5 variants were produced for the US Navy. Production of the PT-13 continued even with the appearance in 1941 of a newer modification, the PT-17. After the war, most of them were resold to third countries and private owners, and many aircraft still participate in numerous air competitions and air shows.
