The course has grown so in numbers that it has kept Head Instructor Claude Hamel busy with constant prep- arations for expansion. The school has gained wide recognition and young men keep pouring into the air- port wanting to learn how to fly. The first requirements are to pass a pretty tough physical exam and produce a birth certificate. Then a few other prerequisites and the student enters ground school. This is not a snap course and plenty of hard study is needed to stay eligible. Finally the student gets into the air and, after, probably, scaring the instructor half to death four or five times, does his solo work. After primary comes sec- ondary work and on up to an instructor ' s rating. Instrument ratings, etc., may be obtained after long experience. With the aviation industry becoming more and more predominant each day, these boys are receiving good training that will be very valuable not only in war, but in the peace after the war. ■ i M MMMaMI— — Hll Mi " Bailey warms up his ship. Instructor Magers gets in to take off. Raley and Ernest come in after work aloft. Luther Hardin gets in his ship and is ready to learn more about the art of flying.

CIVILIAN PI LOT TRAINING ' Switch off! " . . . " Contact! " In 1939, the C. A. A. chose Centenary as one of the nation ' s colleges to offer a course in aeronautics. Today, almost all of the graduates of this course are doing their bit towards the defeat of the enemy. Some are fighting with the armed forces of the United States; some are ferrying bombers across the Atlantic; still others have become instructors and are now teaching others to fly for this great emergency. During that first year, primary flight training was about all that could be offered. Now, advanced courses are being offered to the more eager and hard-working ones. For those who wish to reach the top, an instruc- tor ' s rating may be had. Fledgling flyers enter school cilice. Students take a lew minutes be- tween ilights or pictures.
