Hi all,
 
Has anyone heard of the Air Pilotage School?
I believe it was by Andover.
I'm just checking it did actually exist.
 
Thanks,
Rob.

Hi Errol,
 
Thanks for your reply.
I will have to get myself a copy of the book.
The idividual i'm researching served with No.1 School of Navigation & Bomb Dropping which probably means he transferred to the Air Pilotage School on its formation.
 
Thanks again,
 
Rob.
