MUST LEARN TO FLY "IN TE1E DARK"--One of the phases of flying that Mason City ail- corps reservists will have to go through in their later training is "blind flying." First blind flying training in the air is done in a covered cockpit with an instructor up ahead to check and take over if necessary. When he becomes a flying officer of the U. S. army air forces the cadet will fly through all sorts of weather, * --- ·- ---often without the aid of his instruments to ihiike contact with the enemy. Free Plane Rides to Be Given Here Sunday by CAP Pilots Here in Interest of Army' lr Air Corps Recruiting; Examinations Next Week Eight army planes flown by civil air patrol pilots will arrive in Mason City this weekend and on Sunday any young person wishing a flight who provides a release is entitled to a free ride. The release blanks may be obtained at the principal's office at the high school or at the county clerk's office at the courthouse. The planes are to be here in the interest ol the army air corps recruitment program and the Air-WACs recruitment program. Orientation 'flights will be given to all air corps reservists and all young men and younc women \vho are interested in joining the flying services. Information about requirements, examinations and assignments may -be had from the officers at the air port at that time. ' An army air forces aviation cadet examining board from army recruiting headquarters in DCS Moinej, will be. at Mason. .City postoffice Monday and Tuesday to conduct official examinations for 17 year olds interested in being selected as· future army aviation cadets. The AAF examinations, consisting of a mental and a preliminary physical, will be given promptly at 10 a. m. Application blanks and information may be had from the nearest.aviation, cadet examining board or from any civil air patrol member. Seventeen year olds are eliK- iblc if not in essential industrial or agricultural work, modified physical requirements now permit men with visual acuity 20/30, corrcctible to 20/20 with glasses, eligible for the air forces reserve. All 17 year olds who qualify receive silver wings to wear as AAF I'Cservists. Army officials emphasize that such reservists cannot be called to active duty until they reach their 18th birthday, and if in school at age IB they may continue until the em of their current term providin; such tei-m ends within 6 months after their 18th birthday. "All young women of 21 or Hearing that age should investigate the advantages and benefits of joining this newest service foi women -- (he Air-WACs." declared S. H. MacPenk of the local CAP unit. -'.'Here is the best way to stand shoulder to shoulder with that man in the air force. By joining the Air-WACs women can help immeasurably to 'Keep 'em Flying.' Every man relieved by an Air-WAC will be able really to join the fight to get the war over sooner. ARMY OFFICER DIES SUDDENLY Former Rockwell Man Was U. S.
