The Putt-Putt Air Force: The Story of the Civilian Pilot Training Program and the War Training Service (1939-1944), by Patricia Strickland. Originally published by the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, Aviation Education Staff this 100+ page booklet tells the story of the Civilian Pilot Training Program. Insightful and informative, no other text tells of the CPTP with such clarity. CPTP was a radical departure from conventional thinking when such was sorely needed and was certainly unique among government ventures.

This book is highly recommend for anyone wanting a more in-depth knowledge of the Civilian Pilot Training Program (CPTP). It is written in a straight forward easy-to-read fashion containing many facts about the CAA's contribution to civil aviation and the war effort immediately preceding and during WWII. Many young pilots in the 1960s, flew with and were inspired by those who started in aviation during the CPTP. This book offers better understanding of that important era of aviation and on a broader worldwide scale of its accomplishments.

Chapters include: Pilot By The Thousands, Climbs and A Forced Landing, Grasshoppers, Negro Fliers, Flying Is As Safe As You Make It

Originally printed in paperback. Rare books. 115 pages with illustrations.

The seller is not very friendly.
No photos for assembly. annotations everywhere.
When asked if he could provide me with the plans in metric units the answer was: you just have to convert...

Response from Mike

Actual conversation... Hello ! I've bought PiperCub Plan recently and i'd like to know if you have some picture to simplify the assembly. Thanks in advance ! Sincerly, Nico The drawings show all the assemblies. Thx, Mike I'm sorry but it's not really explicit for french people. (Nico)
