The Boeing Stearman Model A75N1 is a Biplane designed for flight training. Commonly known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman or Kaydet, the aircraft served as a primary trainer for the USAAF, as a basic trainer for the USN and with the RCAF as the Kaydet throughout World War II. About 9,783 were built in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s as a military trainer aircraft. After the war was over, thousands of the aircraft were sold on the civilian market. The versatle biplanes became popular as crop dusters and as sports planes. There are many still in use today (about 1,000) but a fully restored and fully functional Stearman Bi Plane is rare.
