The simple, lightweight Piper Cub worked overtime during World War II, training pilots with the Civilian Pilot Training Program, or CPT. Every would-be military pilot started by learning the basics in the CPT. Tuskegee Airmen then graduated to more difficult planes, such as the Boeing-Stearman PT-17, the Fairchild PT-19, or the North American T-6 Texan.
