Earning Your Wings: Military Flight Training

January 30, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Before becoming United States military pilots, fledging Army aviators underwent the arduous task of attending and completing Air Corps cadet training. Aviation training consisted of several blocks of training from basic flight instruction to advanced flight school. The task of making it successfully through flight school was no easy one and many would-be recruits found themselves washed out. Learn about the process of becoming a military aviator from a man who did just that during WWII and then went on to transition into the jet age during Korea, the Cold War and Vietnam.
