"Anybody who has tried both land and sea plane will stick to seaplanes," says Joseph Schwarz, youthful president of the base school, where 80 students attend class. Schwarz, who flew with the Air Transport Command in hospital evacuation service during tlTe war, has 4,000 hours of flying time. "A seaplane," he said, " can be landed ashore as well as at sea, with a jreater safety factor. It's Fun for Fishing. "Also, there's much more water around. A seaplane pilot can land almost anywhere. Then, you can nave a lot 01 lun nsmng irom a seaplane. I've flown up to Peconic Bay, fished for an hour or two from my plane, maybe take a swim, too, and then fly back to our base." Some students at the base reach the aviation school by boat across the basin from Flatbush Ave. They take turns flying in the Skyport's Piper Cub PA-11 and its Luscombe 8f, both two-seaters. "The Piper Cub is a tandem jobJ says Schwarz, grinning. "The Lus-combe has its seats side-by-side, so that a guy can take his girl up and coo sweet nothings into her ear that s if she can hear him above the noise of the motor!" "Some of our students have pri vate pilot licenses and are studying for their commercial licenses," says rred Miner, director of the school. "About 40 of them are taking courses under the Gl Bill. m Docs, Lawyers, Teafchers. "Quite a few are in the Police and Fire Departments, and these flew during the war. Then we have doctors, lawyers, school teachers, and even a former bartender who likes to fly. Six of the students are women. Our oldest student is 55; our youngest, 16." Students must put in eight hours of flying time before taking their solo flights. To get a private pilot's license. Miller says, a student needs a minimum of 35 hours in the air. "We fly cross-country instruc tion flights to PeekskUl and to Babylon, to Greenwood Lake, Atlantic City and to Philadelphia," says Miller. "On June 24, we will take part in a breakfast flight.' All the seaplane bases will send planes to Peekskill and then will fly irt' formation to Newport, Vt. About 60 planes will make that flight." For Advanced Students. Amonir the maneuvers for the advanced students are the "lazy eights," the "chandelles," and the "spirals." In the, lazy eight," says Schwarz, the pilot, at an altitude of 2,000 feet, puts the plane through all speeds, and then de scribes a figure eight in the sky. J In the chandelle, invented by a French pilot during World War I. the pilot makes a climbing turn with a 180-degree change of direc tion, says bchwarz. "In the spiral, the pilot, starting at 3,000 feet, glides with a steep turn." Miller sits in the pilots' lounge which is equipped with a jukebox, maps, magazines on flying, and sev eral easy chairs. On a table near the window fs the "Dilbert" jar. "The 'dilly' jar is for snafus, like LIKE NEW Ueacral Eleetrl Weatiactiouaa Korea rriirMaira Keirlnatar Coldspa 39 50 GEHUINE Tat.

Proceeds will be used to help finance hangar party." - She Found Him at Last. Miller chuckles as he recalls one dilly. One of the girl students was being checked on her first solo flight. The practice is to have the student land his or her instructor on one of the Jamaica Bay islands, from which the instructor observes the student's landings and take (genuine Mastic ,a aaka a a Coated Fibre Vrinci AUTO SLIP COYERS MOTOR OIL SALE Loag Life Qiality Labri-cant Gives Maximum Per formanca to All Motors. plus CHOICE OF COLORS Smilr-Mediem-Larfe 1.50 & V:U: Ian tik.

In this case, the student took off and then circled around the bay for one hour, unable to locate the spot in which she had landed her instructor. i "She finally found the poor guy!" Miller says. "He figured he'd be stranded for sure!" The cruising speed of the Piper Cub is 80 miles an hour, Schwarz says, while the speed of the Lus-combe is 100 miles an hour. The students are now waiting eagerly for delivery of a new Piper Pacer whose speed will be 125 miles an hour and which will be equipped for night flying. o jr ATKJien 3 adjustable tele-sea a I nt sections wrtb long, lo-loss shielded lead-in wire.
