Any One who has common-sense and patience may learn to fly. In the aviation schools, a good working knowledge of airmanship is ordinarily gained in a total of four hundred minutes spent in the air, divided into a score of lessons. The air would almost seem the natural element of man, such has been the progress in flying during the past few years. With surprisingly little instruction, the average pupil soon learns to feel perfectly at home aloft. Many find it easier to support themselves in the air than in the water. Gravity is, of course, a very exacting taskmaster, but under competent instructors serious accidents to-day are almost unknown.
