Does the Board of Education own an airplane?
All cost of actual flight instruction is paid for by students taking this work. They pay for the cost of operating the plane, which was purchased and is owned by the instructor of the class.
Our course of study in aviation covers two years of school work (one class period per day)--including classroom work in theoretical and practical aerodynamics, engineering, mathematics (with slide rule), aircraft structure, meteorology, navigation, theory and practice of power plant operation; and field experience in simple surveying, navigational problems, and astronomical observation.
Persons unfamiliar with our aviation course believe this is a costly and unnecessary part of school expense. In reality it is not expensive. On the basis of utility and service for students who are planning for a definite occupation in this rapidly growing business of American life, it has more than proved its worth. If we had no aviation course the students would be pursuing studies in the same or similar subjects.
The flight instruction which is carried to the point of government license as airplane pilots is conducted after school hours at the expense of the students.
Some statements of accomplishment for the three years of operation are:
