He is the result of the combined ejorts of hundreds of people and hundredspf hours, both on the ground and in the air. This then is the story of the blending of man and machine into a finely tuned weapons system, and it is the story of the Naval Air Basic Training Command.

Training .The -World's F.in'est Awiatorss- ' A H X A .nes y f - 7 'I fffff iN f TQARUN ONE One of the greatest thrills in the life of an aviator is his first solo flight. Preparing the student Naval aviator to safely ac- complish this feat is a prominent task of Training Squadron ONE CVT-lj at the Naval Auxiliary Air Station, Saufley Field. Upon completion of Pre-Flight school at NAS, Pensacola, all flight students report to the Commanding Officer NAAS Saufley Field where they begin their primary flight training. The primary flight syllabus is programmed for eight weeks. During the first week at Saufley the student spends all day in ground school receiving a thorough indoctrination of what will be expected of him in the primary flight phase. Beginning the second week the student is assigned to Training Squad- ron One for a half of each day where he meets his flight instructor and begins his primary flight training in the T-34 Mentor. Flight Training at VT-1 is divided into two stages of instruction, pre-solo and precision. In the pre-solo phase, the student receives thirteen flights. Eleven of the flights are dual instructional flights, the twelfth is a safe-for-solo check and number thirteen is a solo flight. The eleven dual instructional flights are devoted to preparing the student to solo safely, emphasis is placed on basic air work, proper landing techniques, and prevention of and recovery from unusual flight situations. When the student has thoroughly learned all the necessary fundamentals and has convinced his instructor he is safe-for-solo, he will fly his safe-for-solo check flight with an instructor other than his own. Based on long experience of training and checking students, the check pilot determines whether or not the student is safe to take it alone. To in- dicate success on this flight, a traditional "thumbs up" sign is given by the instructor. The student's last flight in this stage is his long anticipated first solo flight. Successfully completed, the student joins the rank of an elite group. Precision stage is the next phase taught the student. This stage consists of ten flights, five dual, four solo flights, and a final Primary Stage check flight. The student is introduced to different acrobatic maneuvers, with emphasis placed on precision flying, basic air work and landings. With the completion of Pri- . mary Training, the student has . . successfully taken a big step in accomplishing his goal. From NAAS Saufley, the stu- dents select.ed for basic jet training are transferred to the Naval Auxiliary Air Station, Meridian, Mississippi. There they receive basic jet training with either VT-7 or VT-9 in the T21 The student continuing pro- peller-driven aircraft training reports to Naval Auxiliary Air Station, Whiting Field, Mil- ton, Florida where he receives his flight training in VT-2 and VT-3 flying the T-28 Trojan. Although the new fledgling is still quite far from his "Wings of Gold", many of the exper- UTC.'C,'ix iences he has encountered and the habits he has acquired at . VT-l will remain with him throughout his flying career.
