HC Deb 28 April 1937 vol 323 c357W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many schools exist for training boys as air-pilots; where are they situated; and how many boys there are in the schools at present and how many in 1935–36?

Sir P. Sassoon

So far the Royal Air Force is concerned, there are no schools which exist for training boys as pilots, the effect of the regulations relating to entry being that flying instruction is normally confined to those over the age of 18.
