The flying School were to allow students to receive a Private Pilots License. The course took six to 8 weeks and costs $$600.00. Each student had instruction of 10 hours of Dual, 10 hours of Solo and One cross-country flight.

The most well-known flying school in the 30’s was the Curtiss-Wright Flying School. But it was also the largest manufacturer of aircraft and engines.

If you are taught at Curtiss-Wright you will have no trouble getting a job in Commercial or private aviation because tbe name is so respected. The Curtiss-Wright Flying Service text Vol 1930.
