DC Designs PT-17 Stearman for MSFS ➶

The PT-17 Stearman: A very pretty aeroplane that was the primary trainer for US and Canadian air forces in WW2, and very popular in the general aviation civilian market after the war.

I just finished reading Tuskegee Airman Harold H. Brown’s biography, Keep Your Airspeed Up, that I warmly recommend, and which includes vivid descriptions of flying various aeroplanes from biplanes to early jets including the Stearman, which Mr. Brown flew in his first solo flight.

It is lovely to fly a simulated version of an aeroplane you’ve read about, and with so many being released for Microsoft Flight Simulator I will need a new hard drive soon. Here is a video review of the PT-17 by Alan Bradbury.
