Mr. HOWE:

I think we have as fine a school for that purpose, located in Winnipeg and operated by Trans-Canada Air Lines, as can be found anywhere on this continent. The present staff, numbering some ninety-nine, have all been trained there; the pilots, the ground crews and the radio operators have all received training at that school. When we started the enterprise we had the option of making arrangements with one or two United States schools, which do similar work, under which we could send our men over there. We decided to bring the necessary talent here, and to carry out the training in Canada, and for some months this work has been proceeding in Winnipeg.
