|The North American Trainer Association (NATA) is an independent, non-profit corporation dedicated to the restoration and safe flying of North American Trainers such as the AT-6/SNJ/Harvard, NA-64, NA-50, TB-25, TF-51, AND T-28 aircraft.
Membership currently includes the majority of owners of these aircraft in the USA (over 500 flyable T-6's the US), many Canadian owner/pilots as well as those from other countries, and photographers and historians. Membership is open to all enthusiasts.
In 1987 a formation program was started and has expanded to cover virtually all organizations who have members flying warbirds. They have joined together in a
group known as FAST (Formation and Safety Team). Exhaustive training has enabled them to present a exhilarating picture of aviation's past to the millions of spectators attending today's many national and international air shows.
NATA publishes NATA Skylines (magazine with color) quarterly in Jan, Apr, Jul. Oct. The wealth of information about the NAA aircraft, maintenance and formation training/flying, and related events makes it a valuable network for owners, pilots and their crews. Nearly all magazine content is submitted by the membership.
