Historical Note

In 1940, in preparation for American entry into World War II, the U.S. military expanded the Civilian Pilot Training Program to hundreds of U.S. colleges and universities in order to train military personnel. With federal funds from the Civil Aeronautics Administration, the University of Texas was one of many Texas colleges that prepared students for entry into both the Army and Navy Air Corps with the completion of ground school and flight training. Mechanical engineering Professor Venton L. Doughtie served as the coordinator of the specialized training program at the University of Texas. The program was taken over by the Army and Navy in December 1942. The program ended in March 1944.
