Beech AT-11 Kansan

A version of the Beech Model 18 (Twin Beech), The Beech AT-11 Kansan was used for bomber training and light transport among other uses. The Beech AT-11 was produced in the late 1930s with construction ending in 1970. It was one of the world’s most widely used light aircraft. It is reported that over 90% of U.S. Airforce Bombadeers and Navigators were trained in Beech 18s during WWII and continued to be popular for civilian use during the post-war era.

Our volunteers completed the inside restoration of our Beech AT-11 in 1999 by rebuilding the interior and opening it to the public. Today, our team of volunteers have taken on the task of constructing a detailed and accurate cockpit to complete the interior restoration. Below are photos of the various components they are working on such as the console with dials generously donated to the museum by Mr. Michael Cuz of the Aircraft Electronics Association
