Two-seat aircraft for primary pilot training, designed by the Stearman Aircraft Corporation, later a separate division of Boeing. The aircraft had excellent flying characteristics, was relatively easy to control, and became a true "flying desk" for thousands of pilots. In addition to the US Air Force, the aircraft was also built for the US Navy. In total, more than 3,000 PT-17s and more than 3,500 N2Ss for the US Navy were manufactured. The Kaydet was delivered to the Canadian Air Force as the PT-27 under the Lend Lease Agreement. After the war, the vast majority of them were sold to third countries and private owners, and many still participate in various aviation competitions and air shows.
