Flight Training Films, Boeing Stearman Pt-17, 2 Dvd Set:
(Channel 12 Media is the copyright holder for this DVD)
This is a
2-DVD set of WWII Vintage films covering US Navy Basic Flight Training, utilizing the
Boeing Stearman PT-17.This 9-part series was produced in 1944-45 by the US
Navy to accompany the primary flight training curriculum. These films cover the basics of
flying a propeller-driven airplane, and are a fantastic introduction to "Aviation 101".
Produced, Directed and Hosted by USNR Lt. Robert "Bob" Taylor, a famous Hollywood
star of the era, this series covers all the essentials, from pre-flight planning through takeoffs,
landings, attitudes for flight, and ground reference maneuvers. If I were still working as a
full-time flight instructor, this is a series I would keep in my teaching library for students who
are interested in classic aviation. In addition to some thorough and understandable "chalk
talk", this series also contains some rare in-cockpit footage, and some great shots of the
interior of the "Yellow Peril", which is now one of the most sought-after classic warbirds
around. The films are:Film 1: "Flying Sense" (B&W, 24:17)
Film 2: "Before You Fly" (B&W, 34:47)
Film 3: "First Flight Part I" (B&W, 13:52)
Film 4: "First Flight Part II" (B&W, 12:43)
Film 5: "Attitudes of Flight" (B&W, 16:06)
Film 6: "Taxiing and Take-Offs (B&W, 19:04)
Film 7: "Landings" (B&W,13:13)
Film 8: "Race Track Patterns, Part I" (B&W, 21:54)
