Meet the Author

A native Iowan who grew up during the Great Depression, Arden R. Wilson answered the call like many other young men of the 1940's. He entered the Air Force Pilot Training program as an Aviation Cadet in 1943, completing the program in January 1945. He was assigned to the Troop Carrier Command with a dual rating as a glider pilot.

After the WWII, Arden became a Civilian Flight Instructor working at Anderson Air Base in Malden, Missouri, spending eight years as an instructor of USAF student pilots until the program was discontinued by the Air Force in 1960.

As tribute to their efforts, this book is dedicated to the hard working core of Flight Instructors who served during WWII through the 1950's
