Stearman Training Videos by Billy Walker
In this video produced by peerless videographer Alan Ripa I am teaching the 2013 Stearman ground school at Airbase Arizona. There are a few changes between 2013 and the 2017 class. The hold harmless requirements are different now and some of the flight-time requirements have changed. Like the sands of time, the challenging characteristics of the Boeing Model 75 “Stearman” remain unchanged.
Below: two links to WWII training films narrated by actor Robert Taylor who actually was a Navy pilot. Mr. Taylor was at our home a couple of times after WWII when he had purchased a D-18 “Twin Beech” from my father.
