ARTIFACT: This is a rare World War II trainee photograph of the Civilian Pilot Training Instruction from the United States Navy V-5 aviation cadet program. The program was an immediate immersion in flight, starting with mastery of a civilian aircraft. The need for pilots was escalating and training in something lighter than military aircraft increased the safety and competence of the new recruits. The matted photo is of Paul Ray Mattson, and was taken by Guther of Washington, Iowa. The photo can stand up if the tabs and slots are fitted together.

SIZE: Approximately 8" in height by 5-1/2" in width (when folded).
