When the United States government decided upon training collegians in the art of flying, Rollins College was one of the firsts institutions in which this Program was established.
Aided admirably by good flying weather because of its climate, and one of the best landing fields and instruction schools in the south in local Orlando Airport, Rollins made a grand start in this new venture last fall with 40 student pilots.
The course was an extensive one. Ground school work was held three nights a week, while the students practiced their flying during the day.
By mid-winter, all students had "soloed," and were learning technical turns and complicated maneuvers.
