SOM E THIN GS T© IJ
SHOULD !U%JOW ABOUT
Here, in question and answer
form, are some facts on the
U. S. Air Force Aviation
Cadet program. They cover
details you may have been
wondering about —and will be useiui to you
if you want to learn to fly and begin a career
in one of today’s fastest-moving fields.
1* Who is eligible for appointment to the Cadets?
You. if you’re physically fit, single, between 20 anti
26l/i years old, and have completed at least one-half
the requirements for a college degree from an
accredited institution — or pass an equivalent
2* How long does the training last — and what
does it cover?
You receive approximately 52 weeks’ training —
worth $35,000 - in primary, basic and advanced
flying, along with other related courses designed
to give you the finest background in your specialty.
3# What’s the story on duty after graduation?
After successful completion of the course, you will
he commissioned a Second Lieutenant, Officers Re
serve Corps, and assigned to pilot duty with the
U. S. Air Force at a starting monthly salary of
$336 (including flight pay). You will serve on
active duty for three years unless sooner relieved,
and be eligible for $500 a year bonus for each year
of active duty as a Reserve Officer. If vou’re inter
ested in a Regular Air Force commission, you’ll
be given a chance to qualify.
4o What are the civilian career opportunities?
That’s one you can answer for yourself by taking
into consideration these facts: Contrary to what
some people think, aviation is not overcrowded —
for pilots or anyone else. No field is expanding
more rapidly or offering more profitable openings
to qualified men. After Aviation Cadet training,
you can compete on an equal basis with any flier
in the world.
These are only a few of the advantages. Why
