North American NA 35

The North American NA-35 was a training aircraft designed by North American Aviation. It was first test flown in January 1940 by Vance Breese. Although announced for trade the month after, the project was pushed aside by plant expansions and the development of the P-51 Mustang. Although further test flights were conducted, and construction began on a few more aircraft, the project remained stagnant, until Vega bought the rights to the aircraft in October 1940, and developed it into the Vega 35.
