The PT-19 developed by Fairchild in 1938 to satisfy a military requirement for a rugged monoplane primary trainer, was ordered into quantity production in 1940.  In addition to being manufactured by Fairchild during WWII, the “Cornell” was produced in the U.S. by the Aeronca, Howard and St. Louis Aircraft Corporations and in Canada by Fleet Aircraft, Ltd.  Some Cornell’s were powered by Continental radial engines and designated PT-23’s, while others were produced with cockpit canopies and designated PT-26’s.  Altogether 7,742 Cornell’s were manufactured for the AAF, with 4,889 of them being PT-19’s.  Additional Cornell’s were supplied to Canada, Norway, Brazil, Ecuador and Chile.

 

The Heritage Flight Museum PT-19 was purchased in May 2003 and made it’s first appearance for the Museum at the Bellingham International Airport in June of 2003 at BLI’s annual “Airfest”.  It is a very nice flying aircraft – often referred to as the “Land-o-matic” for it’s kind landing characteristics.
