Więcej informacji:

The Curtiss-Wright AT-9 Jeep was a twin-engined advanced trainer aircraft used by the United States during World War II to bridge the gap between single-engine trainers and twin-engine combat aircraft. The AT-9 was of a low-wing cantilever monoplane configuration, had retractable landing gear and was powered by two Lycoming R-680-9 radial engines.
The AT-9 was designed by Curtiss-Wright Corporation to simulate the demands of multi-engined operations, such as those of the Martin B-26 Marauder and the Lockheed P-38 Lightning. The AT-9 had a small and light layout, with a welded steel-tube fuselage structure and a stressed metal skin covering. The AT-9 was purposely made to be less stable and difficult to fly or land, which made it suitable for teaching new pilots to cope with the challenging flight characteristics of high-performance aircraft.
The first prototype of the AT-9, designated as CW-25, flew in 1941 and entered service in 1942. It was nicknamed “The Fledgling” by Curtiss-Wright and “Jeep” by the US Army Air Forces. A total of 491 AT-9s were built before production switched to a revised version, the AT-9A, which had different engines and a modified hydraulic system. The AT-9A was produced until February 1943, with 300 units built. The AT-9 and AT-9A were not offered for sale to civilians after the war, although some were given to ground schools for training purposes.
