§ 26. Rear-Admiral Sir Murray Sueter
asked the Secretary of State for Air what reports he has received from the inspector of civil flying clubs on the standard of flying in Civil Air Guard units; and whether they have been satisfactory?
The Inspector of Civil Flying Clubs took up his duties on 1st May and is now engaged on visiting light aeroplane clubs Up to date he has rendered reports on seven clubs. The reports are generally satisfactory and indicate that the training is being given efficiently.
8,636 men and 1,052 women have been enrolled in the Civil Air Guard. The average amount expended in subsidy to date on this membership is £ 13 14s. per person.
No, Sir. The limit of liabilty on public funds is contained in the agreement with the light aeroplane clubs, which provides for grants in respect of members trained to A licence standard varying with the type of aircraft and for other flying, thus providing flying facilties for members of the Air Guard at very low hourly rates.
