Katherine & Marjorie Stinson, Pioneer Aviatrices (4260 words)
Stinson received her license on July 24, 1912, and one year later she began her exhibition career in Cincinnati, Ohio, flying a Wright B. The postcard at right (courtesy Gord Mallett in Alberta) was taken at Calgary Alberta on 9 July 1918 just prior to her air mail flight to Edmonton.

Stinson Aircraft Corporation (1604 words)
The Stinson Reliant was a rugged aircraft built of fabric-covered welded steel-tubing structures with a single strut-braced double-tapered wing, and one of the last of the “taildraggers” (an airplane lacking a nose-wheel so it looked like its tail dragged when taxiing).
Another popular Stinson aircraft was the Model 105 Voyager, a three-passenger airplane featuring a strut-braced wing mounted on the top of the fuselage and capable of flying at about 120 miles per hour (193 kilometers per hour).
The Stinson SR-10 Reliant was also transformed for use in World War II as the UC-81, used by the U.S. Army as a utility aircraft, and the AT-19/V-77, used by the British Royal Navy for a passenger transport, instrument trainer and photo-reconnaissance aircraft.
