PT-13 More Info

Designed in 1934 to meet a US Army specification for a new training airplane, the PT-13 Kaydet was the iconic American training aircraft of World War II. Around 10,000 Stearmans were manufactured for service with the US Army, US Navy (as the N2S), Canada, The Philippines, and many Central American countries. Post-war Stearmans became the airplane of choice for cropdusters and airshow performers. Our PT-13A was accepted by the US Army in 1940 and served throughout the war. Entering the civilian register in 1946, it was graciously donated to the CAF in 2009 by Tom Hall.

PT-19 More Info

The Heart of America Wing of the Commemorative Air Force is fortunate to be located at the New Century AirCenter, the former Olathe Naval Air Station, which was commissioned in 1942 as a primary training facility for US Navy pilots.

 We meet the third Saturday of each month at 10:00am for a short business meeting followed by a presentation and lunch.  Members of the public are welcome to join us!

 The CAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational association.  Proceeds from ticket sales, rides, and fund-raising events go to support our community education programs and to keep our vintage military aircraft in flying condition.
