Historical Notes

. 

  • Cadets typically recieved 75-80 hours flight instruction at this level prior to moving to Transition Training.
  • Curtiss AT-9 Jeep:  The NMUSAF has the only remaining intact example in existance.
  • Beech AT-10 Wichita: The NMUSAF has the only remaining intact example in existance.
  • Federal AT-20 Anson: Following V-E Day all remaining aircraft were returned to the RCAF.

 

* The letter "I" at Mather Field (CA) signified the "Centralized Flight Instructor Program" 1942-43. This program was later transferred to Ft. Sumner AAF, NM. Interestingly, letter codes "I" and "T" were used concurrently at Mather.
