The flying schools were to allow students to receive a Private Pilots License. The course took six to 8 week and costs $$600.00. Each student had instruction of 10 hours of Dual, 10 hours of Solo and One cross-country flight.
The Curtiss-Wright Flying School was one of the largest civilian aviation in the United States. The students needed to take a written test covering theory of flight, aerodynamics, aircraft structures, aerial navigation and air commerce regulations.
Curtiss-Wright Fields and Schools were planned in major cities. Because of the Depression the fields and schools that didn’t happen.
The Fields were more like a country club than an airport. The fields were huge with parking for 10,000 cars, restaurants, pools and a clubhouse with a bar and a grass flying flying field.
One of Vicky’s accomplishments was to receive her Private Flying License from the Curtiss-Wright school.
