PIONEER BOY WILL BECOME ARMY PILOT
Foster L. Cash, 23, of Pioneer, is one of approximately 175 young men who have completed almost two thirds of their flight training and will report shortly in one of the advanced flying schools for the final ten week period of training.
Cash reported at Moffett Field on February 11, following completion of the ten week primary training course at Cal-Aero Training Corp, at Ontario, California, one of the advanced schools for a ten week period of advanced training.
Prior to his acceptance as a flying cadet last November, Cash, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. C. Cash, Pioneer, attended Pioneer high school, and Howard Payne College Brownwood. While in school he played football and at the time of his acceptance as a flying cadet by the Air Corps, had thirty five hours flight training with C.A.A. to his credit.
On completion of the basic, or second course, at Moffett Field, Cash and his class will go to one of the advanced schools, probably at Stockton, California, for the advanced course. The completion of this course will lead to a commission as second lieutenant in the Air Corps Reserve, and his wings as a full-fledged Air Corps pilot. He will then be assigned with one of the Air Corps units for tactical instruction and training.
