Beech T-34 Mentor

Beech T-34 Mentor

The T-34 was the brainchild of Walter Beech, who developed it as the Beechcraft Model 45 private venture at a time when there was no defense budget for a new trainer model. Beech hoped to sell it as an economical alternative to the North American T-6/SNJ Texan , then in use by all services of the U.S. military. Versions of the T-34 were used for a time by the Air Force and Navy in their pilot training programs.



Proceeds from the air show benefit these three museums in Colorado Springs that are dedicated to the education of future generations through the preservation of our nation’s military heritage.
