Photo of AT-9 trainer

The AT-9 was designed as a twin-engine pilot transition trainer at a when there was a need for a "hot" trainer with light bomber landing characteristics. The original AT-9 prototype used steel tube fuselage and fabric covered wings, but the production version was all stressed skin. The AT-9s and AT-9As, useful for pilot transition only, were phased out of service as production tactical models and more versatile trainers for full crew integration training became available.
