Link Instructor School
The Pilot Trainer
"You could twirl him around and rock him up and down."
"So I went to Chanute Field...I had enough college so they would let me go to Link instructor school, which was a school for training pilots to fly instruments. And we learned to fly the Link instructor, which was a container like a box. And you’d put the pilot in the box, and you could twirl him around and rock him up and down. And he had to fly instruments. And you’d give him courses to take, courses to fly. And of course we didn’t know anything about flying. We had no training. But we knew how to run the Link."
Editor's note: What Guy Gunter refers to as the "Link instructor" was more commonly known as the Link Trainer.
