Summary
Notation on back, "Taking a quick glance at one of the huge twin-engined planes he soon may be flying is this Aviation Cadet, a member of Class 42-D, just completing its basic training at Randolph Field, Texas. These cadets, who have just flown and studied their way through ten weeks of ardous work, will now be graduated to more powerful single-engine planes or multi-motored ships which will constitute the last leg in their training. After ten weeks of this advanced flying, they will receive their "wings" and be commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army Air Corps."
