Abstract:

In the preparation of this subject, I wrote to all the Corps Area Air Officers, many former Corps Area Air Officers, and. the Air Officer of the Hawaiian Department. The replies received are attached to this study as my bibliography, specific references being made to the true copies of the original letters. I was Air Officer of the Sixth Corps Area for a period of four years 1927-1931, and during that time, actually came in contact with the problems presented. Certain phases of this subject that were not touched upon in any of the letters are discussed by me, and are referred to as Personal Experience. I agree with all the ideas and principles embodied in this thesis although I do not make specific references to personal experiences throughout the entire study. This thesis treats specifically of the duties of a Corps Area Air Officer. However, the only essential difference between the duties of a Corps Area Air Officer and a Department Air Officer is that the latter, in addition to being a Special Staff Officer, actually commands all Air Corps troops in the Department. The above applies not only to the Hawaiian Department but also to the Panama and Philippine Departments.
