Application Requirements
Are Changed To Reduce
Age Limits,_Expense
Despite priorities and typically
perverse Ann Arbor weather, the Ci-
vilian Pilots' Training Course is rap-
idly getting under way with its
Spring program.
Having filled its quota of 50 stu-
dents, 30 in the Elementary and 20
in the Secondary Course, the actual
flying has already begun. In addi-
tion, there is ground school work
consisting of classes three nights a
week for the Elementary students
and four nights a week for those in;
the more advanced course with train-
ing in aerodynamics, navigation,
power plants, aircraft and code prac-
Course Times To Change
At the present time the ground
school courses meet at 7:00 p.m. but
will probably be moved up an hour
in order to get in more hours of day-
light flying. Each student's course
is adjusted to his academic program
so that he can fly every day thatj
the weather permits.
Requirements for the course have
been lowered this year, with age
limits and costs especially reduced.
In order to participate the applicant
War Workers
Are Offered
New Courises
With more than 3,000 workers in
Michigan war industries already
trained for work in advance technical
fields, the University has announced
a new series of courses in the U. S.
Office of Education's engineering,
science and management defense
training program, which is expected
to draw at least 1,000 new enroll-

must successfully pass a rigid physi-
cal examination, must be a male citi-
zen of the United States and must
have attained his eighteenth but not
his twenty-sixth birthday.
In addition, he must obtain the
written consent of his parents if he
is under 21P years of age, must have
completed at least 15 hours of col-
lege work and must be neither on
active duty nor awaiting orders from
the Army, Navy or Marine Corps.
The cost of the course. has been
lowered to approximately half of last
year's and includes the physical ex-
amination, while the flight training
part of the program is absolutely
The Civilian Pilot Training Pro-
gram was begun a few years ago by
a government money appropriation
with the idea of developing civilian
aviation and has enjoyed a rapid
growth. The complete program at
present represents four consecutive
training courses-Elementary, Sec-
ondary, Cross-country and Instruc-
tor, totally 200 hours of flying.
Flying, Ground School
The Elementary Course contains
35 flying hours spread over a period
of 10 to 15 weeks, plus 72 hours of
ground school instruction. It is taken
by those who wish to use it as a
stepping stone to military service, by
those who wish to use it in conjunc-
tion with a career in the aviation
industry, and by those who wish to
continue with the secondary and
other CPT courses.
Upon successful completion of the
elementary course, a student will re-
ceive a private pilot's license for
small aircraft up to 80 H.P. and is
eligible to participate in the second-
ary course.
