ADVANCED FLYING COURSE STARTS

C. A. A. Chooses Ten Undergraduate Pilots For Secondary Training

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Ten students, accepted from over 30 eligible applicants for the Civil Aeronautics Authority's advanced training course, will start flying next week, William Bollay, C. A. A. instructor, announced yesterday.

To be eligible the undergraduates must have passed the C. A. A.'s primary course. They must be at least in their Junior year, signify willingness to join the Army or Navy Air Corps whenever the government deems it necessary, and pay $32 for medical examinations and insurance.

The purpose of the secondary course is to prepare the young pilots for commercial work or for training at government schools such as Langley Field or Pensacola. They will receive 126 hours of ground training and 40 to 50 hours flying practice in a 225-horsepower Waco training ship. The course will end January 15 when a new group will be chosen from the remaining applicants.
