I did my first solo in N7876N at Tipton airport with the Fort Meade Flying Activity. The T41 flies like a dream and can really take the beatings that student pilots are bound to put them through. I'm no exception.

I'm helping a friend locate someone to help in restoring his T-41...It has been with the current rebuilder for several years now and my friend needs someone with expertise to "take-over and FINISH the job" BOTH OF US ARE ANXIOUS TO FLY IT.

Please give us ANY hints of information that might help us in the research path to "blue skies"....THANKS!!!

We have one here and it is a great little airplane. We are in need of another propeller for it. Does anyone know where one may be available?

Does anyone remember if the T-41C had this paint scheme when it was at the USAF Academy in the 1960's, or did it have another paint scheme. We are going to repaint N7891N and we want the very original paint scheme on ours. If someone has a picture of these T-41C's at Colorado during the 60's, please email them to me if possible.
Thank you,

I trained on the T-41C for my private pilot license. i loved how i got a high performance rating out of it because of the monster 210hp engine lol.
it climbed like a bat out of hell compared to the standard cessna's. doing short field and soft field takeoffs were like being in a fighter jet.

i still fly them at the Patrick AFB aero club to this day.

My first plane was a T-41C. I flew mostly 7886N at the Travis Aero Club in 1999. Great tail and very stable. I talked to some other guys that have flown at Travis since and I guess 86N isn't flying anymore.

What I loved the most about the T-41C was the horsepower over the standard Cessna. It was very forgiving. Still my favorite plane over the T-37.

I did my C-mod checkout in the aircraft pictured above(N7751L). I currently fly N7891N out at the Travis AFB Aero Club.

I just wanted to specify that I did not know that when the photo of 51L was submittd it would list it as \"copyright\" by anyone. I can attest that Don Welch is the owner and creator of this photo. But... I am at the controls, and our good friend Richard \"George\" Washington was right next to me.

The contest was won by our Chief Pilot.... but Don did suceed as the best studet pilot. Conradulations to Paul as well. It is good to know that Beale is still cranking them out.
