Fairchild PT-19 Cornell
 
   


United States, basic trainer, two pilots in tandem

The Fairchild PT-19 was introduced as a 2-seater training plane, normally with an open cockpit. Production of the PT-19 and related versions was brought to a halt in 1944. By then, about 7,500 of them had been built.

In the summer of 1940, a Norwegian training camp for the Army and Navy Airforces was established in Canada. A total of 86 Fairchild Cornells were delivered to the Norwegian forces during World War II. In 1941, all of them were modified and turned into PT-26's with closed cockpits and improved instrumentation.

Fairchild Cornells were in use as training planes at Norwegian Airforce installations in Canada and England throughout the duration of the war, and in Norway after the war until 1956.
