THURSDAY, "FEBRUARY '27f 1341 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK;)' COURIER NEWS -PAGE FIVE U. S. Navy Sprouts New Wings And Seeks To Train More Young Men To Wear Them By NKA Service WASHINGTON.—The Navy's new motto might be "Join the Navy and Learn lo Fly.". For thif, month the Navy Department is getting a big new recruiting drive under way to bring more of the 45,000 young men it estimates are eligible and available into the Naval Aviation Reserve. Less publicized than Army aviation training, the Navy's pilot program has as its goal 25,000 pilots, active and reserve, by* 1945. The Army expects to train 12,000 men a year, with this iooC-a-monlh .schedule reached next March, while the Navy hopes its program will be going great guns by .July, 1942, turning out 800 student pilots a month. Established in July, 1935, the Naval Aviation Cadet Corps' first flock cf fledgling pilots numbered only sixteen. Now the Navy has 13 Naval Reserve Aviation bases for preliminary teaching and three Naval Aviation bases for further training. IT'S NOT EASY TO GET IN Standards of eligibility are high, may have to be lowered. Men admitted must have had two years at college, be between 20 and 27 years old, unmarried and in perfect plvsl?al condition. After about a month's "t?st" flight training at Naval Reserve ' "\ ~ aviation bases, successful .students are sent to one of the principal naval flight training centers (Pensacola and Jacksonville, Fla'., and after April, Corpus Christi, Tex.). There the students >fly primary seaplanes and landplanes until they are thoroughly familiar .with every phase of emergency work, acrobatics, nh;ht flying, blind flying and extended flights.
