Check out the cockpit of this metal fuselage Jenny JNS. The Jenny trained 95% of our WWI pilots.
Although the United States did not officially declare war Germany until April 6, 1917, WWI began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to Austria-Hungary's throne and his wife, Sophie, on June 28, 1914.
This year, 2014 marks the Centennial of WWI
Following the end of WWI these new pilots could purchase a war-surplus Jenny and engine for as little as $400 and sought to bring freedom and the potential of flight to thousands. The Jenny's top speed was about 75mph.
