Air Officer's Education

There are three distinct elements in the education of an Air Force officer military instruction, technical or professional training, and general education. Air warfare has come upon us so rapidly that the military instruction of Air Force officers has never been thought out and analyzed as a new military problem. The traditional army basic training has consequently served as the model for military instruction in the Air Force. Close-order drill, bivouacs, field exercises and the other common routine ground-training maneuvers are as much an introduction to military life for a young flyer as they are for a foot soldier. This approach overlooks the fact that each occupation has its own peculiar psychology, its own dialectics. Article reprinted from Air University Quarterly Review 1, no. 2 Fall 1947 9-24.
