Students interested in applying for
enrollment in either the primary or
secondary course of the Civilian Pilot
Training program, are advised to do
so immediately, taking care to return
their applications as early as possible
in order to receive consideration.
Requirements for enrollment in;
these courses are that applicants
must be male citizens between the
ages of 19 and 26, must have com-
pleted a year at the University, and
must possess normal health and vi-
sion. Former primary course students
are not automatically continued in
the secondary course and must apply
again if they wish to continue their
The primary course, which is com-
pleted in about fifteen weeks, fulfills
the requirements for a private pilot's
license for small aircraft, up to 80
horsepower, and costs $38. This
training ordinarily would be valued at
over $300, but a government money
grant makes the low fee possible.
The course consists of 35 hours of
flying, adjusted to the spare time
schedule of the individual through-
out the day, and three evening

ground-school classes on Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday. Students
fly about three hours a week.
Anyone intending to apply or wish-
ing to receive more information may
call or visit the Civilian Pilot Train-
ing Office, Room B-47, in the East
Engineering Buildiig.
