Growing Up Green: 1941-2015: Civilian Pilot Training Program


The Civilian Pilot Training Program was instituted at North Texas in October 1940.  Flight training, which was provided by Floyd Flying Service, included instruction in air regulations, aerial navigation, and meteorology.  About three hundred students received training in the program before its replacement in 1942 by the civil aeronautics administration program.  Pictured are Charles Sanford and Howard Jackson in the plane, and Newell Langford spinning the propeller.
