About this Plan

Fairchild PT-19 - Rubber scale model of the military primary trainer.

Quote: "Designed to meet the rigid requirements for training planes of the United States army air corps, the Fairchild PT‑19 is of a design similar to the majority of combat planes, yet it possesses the flight and strength characteristics required of training aircraft.
This two‑place. low‑wing monoplane is powered by a Ranger engine of 175 hp which gives a speed of 135 mph. Construction is conventional, wood, metal and fabric being used; the cantilever wing is plywood covered. A high degree of visibility, an important factor in all training planes, is achieved by the use of the inverted, in‑line engine and the open cockpits.
From the modeler's point of view the PT‑19 affords a fine subject for a flying scale model. The test model was built to exact scale except for a slight modification of the stabilizer area and of course the enlarged propeller; it is capable of making flights of about one minute. Because of the plane's simple, efficient design, it is not difficult to construct an authentic, sturdy model from the full‑size plans, which are presented here..."

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
