1917 Standard J-1 N6948

The Standard J-1 was one of the earliest primary trainers made for the United States military. It trained pilots who would serve in World War I. After the war, most J-1s were sold as surplus to barnstormers and early aviation services. The mechanical airspeed indicator on the right hand wing strut shows the simplicity of early aviation design. This particular J-1 was among 100 aircraft produced for the Army’s second order placed on April 18, 1917. Approximately 1,600 J-1s were built, but only six are known to survive. Built by the Standard Aero Corporation of Plainfield, New Jersey.

Donated from the Estate of: Charles Klessig, Galesburg, ND.
