| An update on that NP-1 Jack talked about. It has found its way to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum in my home town in Tulsa OK. At present it is on static display. So if you want to see an NP-1 That is where you can go. |

| The good ole NP1: There were a good number of them assigned to NAS Olathe Kansas when it opened up. I soloed in one on 1 Jan 1943 and on through A and B stage. As I recall, there were a number of them with under-wing hoops to prevent groundloop damage. We learned quickly about the use of trim tab as It was heavy on the controls, requiring a lot of trim adjstments on base turn and final. When there were heavy winds they had the cadets out on the runway on either side of the landing run whose duty was runout and flop on the wingtips to add weight. I don't think that procedure lasted very long and I never had that duty. As the N3Ns and N2S began to become part of the base a/c complement, no one wanted to fly in the NP. Scuttlebutt had it that if anything went wrong in the NP, bail out and good riddance. |
