Civil Aeronautics Authority,
Washington, D.C.


I have heard that the Civil Aeronautics Authority is considering expanding their force of Inspectors.  If this is the case, I know of a young man whom I would recommend as a likely candidate for one of these positions. 

His name is Michael A. Gitt and he has been in our employ for the past few months.  Due to a falling off of business during the winter months, we do not feel that we can carry our full personnel through the winter, and for this reason, he will be available.

I have noticed that Mr. Gitt uses painstaking care while instructing students as well as insisting that all the airplanes with which he comes in contact be meticulously maintained.  It is this characteristic of Mr. Gitt's which I think particularly makes him the kind of person who would be a good inspector.

I trust you will give his application careful consideration.

Sincerely yours,


A.B. Bennett
