Excerpt from History of Air Education and Training Command, 1942-2002 Until the early 19303, pilots had been their own navigators. Then as airlines began to make long distance flights, they added a navigator to the flight crew. The military, however. Continued to treat navigation training as part of pilot training. Consequently when it, too, began to see a need for specialized navigators, in July 1940 the Army signed a contract with Pan American Airways, Incorporated, to provide training in navigation and meteorology to flying cadets, an arrangement that continued until 1944. In November 1940 the Air Corps opened its first navigator school at Barksdale Field, Louisiana. Cadres later went out from Barksdale to establish seven other schools across the country.
