The parallels between safe flying and safe driving. With footage of Army Air Force cadets studying Morse Code, having their reaction time and depth perception tested, and doing classroom work.


Flying an aircraft is easy for a pilot because he has gone through extensive training. Before the Army allows pilots to fly they must pass health examinations, have their response time tested, go through evaluations of their depth perception, study Morse Code and every part that makes up the aircraft. Likewise, the automobile driver should study the booklet that provides information about their vehicle, study the traffic regulations, and practice driving with another person before taking their first solo voyage. "Driving an automobile is easy when you know how."
