Example text

This reaffirmed the need for fleet airship groups and their 44 squadrons. Coastal patrol and escort of convoys became their primary missions, in addition to the general utility role. During wartime operations, the Navy’s airship fleet made 55,900 operational flights totaling 550,000 hours. Only one airship was lost to enemy action. Tactics and doctrine developed in the twenties and thirties were perfected during the forties, and new combat techniques were added to the Navy’s inventory. As the war progressed, the Navy placed much emphasis on instrument flight training and procured airborne radar for fleet aircraft.

M. Pride piloted the Navy’s first rotarywing aircraft, an XOP-1 autogiro, landing aboard and taking off from Langley while underway. Official Navy participation in air races was drastically curtailed in the thirties due to economic restrictions. Under a congressional mandate to complete a five-year program of building up and maintaining 1,000 aircraft and two large airships, it became necessary to limit costs. Navy withdrawal from official competition was a disappointment to many — especially men like Lieutenant Al Williams, who elected to continue on his own.

Separate air commands provided operational, primary, intermediate, technical and naval airship training. To ensure standardization and uniform excellence of flight instruction, the Flight Standardization Board was established, whose members made regular visits to the primary training bases and flew with the instructors to check on their aptitude, procedures and current knowledge. In 1943, the Training Division of the Bureau of Aeronautics was transferred to the newly created Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Air, and the Chief of Naval Air Training was established with cognizance over all primary, intermediate and operational training commands.
