Stearman Aircraft was formed in 1926 by Lloyd C Stearman in Venice, California but moved to Wichita, Kansas in 1927.

In 1929, Stearman became part of United Aircraft along with Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, Chance Vought and Hamilton Standard.  When United Aircraft was broken up in 1934, Stearman remained a division of Boeing.

In 1939, Stearman was renamed the Wichita Division of Boeing although its most famous product, the Kaydet, continued to be known as the Stearman Kaydet.
