Year: 1933

Donation: Terry Brandt

Engine: Lycoming R-680 200HP

This one-and-only airplane is the prototype of the Stearman Model 75 “Kaydet” biplane, an icon of aviation. The Model 70 was a blend of the Boeing 203 and the Stearman Model 6 Cloudboy and took just 60 days from idea to first flight. The Model 70 design was so refined that the Army considered its stall too gentle for a military trainer so the upper wing was modified for the desired performance and the change applied to all production Kaydets. Over 10,000 Kaydets (Navy N2S, Army PT-13, -17, -18, RCAF PT-27) were built.
