The Fleet Model 1 and its derivatives were all orthodox biplanes with staggered, single-bay wings of equal span and fixed tailskid undercarriage. Accommodation was provided for two in tandem, originally sharing a single open cockpit, but in most examples in separate open cockpits. The fuselage was made of welded steel tube with triangular-layout Warren truss construction pattern side structures typical of the time, and the wings had a wooden spar with duralumin ribs, the entire aircraft being fabric-covered. Despite a superficial resemblance to Consolidateds highly successful Trusty and Husky designs (hence the « Husky Junior » nickname), the Model 14 was an all-new design. PT-6 – USAAC désignation pour le modèle 2 (16 construits)

The Consolidated PT-6A is a single-engine turboprop aircraft designed and manufactured by Consolidated Aircraft Corporation. The PT-6A was first flown in 1944 and entered service with the United States Army Air Forces in 1945. The PT-6A was used for training, liaison, and utility missions, and could carry up to four passengers or 600 pounds of cargo. The PT-6A was powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1340 radial engine that produced 600 horsepower and gave the aircraft a maximum speed of 200 miles per hour and a range of 1,000 miles. The PT-6A had a wingspan of 39 feet, a length of 27 feet, and a height of 9 feet. The PT-6A was also known as the L-13 Grasshopper and the UC-78 Bobcat in military service, and as the Cessna T-50 in civilian use. The PT-6A was retired from military service in 1955 and from civilian service in 1969. About 5,400 PT-6As were built, and some are still flying today as vintage aircraft.
