Tubal Claude Ryan
Birth: Jan. 3, 1898
Labette County
Kansas, USA
Death: Sep. 11, 1982

San Diego County
California, USA

"Tubal Claude Ryan learned to fly at the U.S. Air Service Flight School at March Field, California, in 1921. He established Ryan Flying Company at San Diego in 1922, and the first year-around passenger service in the United States, San Diego to Los Angeles in 1925. His first production aircraft, the M-1 Mailplane in 1926, provided the design basis for Lindbergh's famous Spirit of St. Louis.

During the early 1930's, he founded the Ryan School of Aeronautics and the Ryan Aeronautical Company, producing the popular Ryan ST in 1934, first of the successful series of monoplane trainers that evolved into the widely employed Army Air Forces PT-22, training more than 22,000 pilots during World War II.

After the War, the Ryan firm pioneered development of experimental aircraft for short takeoff and landings and vertical takeoff, and pilotless target and reconnaissance drones. Claude Ryan retired from active management of his company in 1969".
