    Default CFS Courses

    Dear all

    I have managed to build the following list of CFS flying instructor courses ('FIC') from about 1928-1941.

    Can anyone add dates or course numbers to this, please, confirm my "(?)", or correct any errors?

    Thanks
    Steve

    Hello Steve,
    My grandfather's Flying log records his attending the Instructor's course No. 41 at Wittering. The dates are August 23~November 10, 1933. The Chief Flying Instructor, Sqn Ldr R. Harrison signed his log on November 16th. John Heber Percy passed.
