Kadette Aviation Co.
The year was 1939, the place Easterwood Airport, College Station, Texas - before it was Easterwood Airport. Kadette Aviation Co. obtained the contract for a Civilian Pilot Training Program to train the college students enrolled at Texas A & M to fly for the Army. At that time the airport had one runway and one hangar...and the runway wasn't even paved. What a thrill it was to work in such a carefree environment. I again worked with Johnny Hamp and Vernon Kummel (as instructors this time) at Municipal Airport in Houston.
