The Big Easy Wing received the PT-17 Stearman called New Orleans Lady in August 2018. The Wing has upgraded the aircraft with a reconditioned engine and a reconditioned propeller. With these upgrades, New Orleans Lady will be participating at airshows as part of the ride program. Eager to use the aircraft as a center piece of an expanding educational program, the wing has already hosted over 250 students at the hangar to view and learn about the Stearman and the role trainers played in aviation history.
New Orleans Lady still requires some additional improvements required by the FAA. An avionic system including a radio, Garmin transponder, and ADS-B is needed by January 2020. If these items are not installed by January, she will be grounded.
Help us continue this PT -17 legacy.
