Mr. J.H. Carmichael,
Pennsylvania-Central Airlines Corp.,
Alleghany County Airport,
Pittsburgh, Pa.

Dear Mr. Carmichael!
I would like to sum up in a few words my qualifications for an Airline Co-Pilots position.

In the past, I have been employed by different companies; I have worked for Aero Service Corporation in Philadelphia as a Photographic Pilot and also for General News Service in New York in the same capacity (Photo Pilot).

I have flown Stinson Reliants for Unger Aircraft at Hadley Airport, New Jersey on charter jobs all over the East.  These Stinsons wre fully equipped with Two-way radio, controllable pitch propeller and all necessary blind flying instruments.
My experience with Bennett Air Service of Hightstown, N.J. is as follows;flying both Land and SeaPlanes, and doing student instruction and demonstration work in both types of aircraft.

I have had considerable experience flying the "beam" on Civil Airways, this training I believe would make me valuable as an Airline Pilot.

At present I am employed by Standard Flying Service at Basking Ridge, N.J. doing Student Instruction and Charter work, as Chief Pilot.  My employer knows that I am seeking Airline employment and is willing to aid me in securing such a position.  Should you wish to interview me, I am available at any time.

Very truly yours,
Michael A. Gitt
