    PT-26 More Info

    In 1988 eight people with an interest in preserving aviation history began the process to form The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron. On November 17, 1990, the newest unit of the national Commemorative Air Force was officially sanctioned.

    The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron works on the past with an eye to the future. We have a flyable PT-19 and Stinson 108-1 and are restoring a PT-26 which is expected to be complete by the Fall of 2018. We sell rides on our PT-19 and Stinson throughout the warmer months and offer gift certificates for both aircraft.

    We are fortunate to be housed at the Tulsa Technology Center located on Jones airport in south Tulsa. This is a state of the art facility with a large hangar space, a dedicated office, a tool and equipment room, as well as a classrooms where meetings and ground school take place.

    The spirit of camaraderie is strong in our squadron. We currently gather for monthly meetings on the last Saturday of each month at Tulsa Technology Riverside Campus room A114 at 10AM. We work on restoration projects on Tuesday evenings, beginning as early as 3:00pm for some and going to as late as 8:00pm. The other Saturday mornings of the month our squadron schedules time to work on our projects. We never work on an empty stomach, traditionally meeting at 7am for breakfast at ‘First Watch’ restaurant at 82nd and Lewis in Tulsa. At 8am, we caravan to the hangar and divide up for our various assignments for the day and work until noon.

    We are especially happy to have people of all ages and backgrounds in our squadron, from 12-year- olds to ninety plus, every race, color and creed, men and women. There is a place for everyone in The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron! Please remember that you do not have to be a pilot or mechanic to join us, just someone interested in joining a fellowship of men and women who have a patriotic bent and a desire to preserve a bit of aviation history, while having fun doing it. We need people of all professions, from clerical to engineers; from computer literate folks to salesmen.
