Memorandum for General Arnold

February 12, 1941 [Washington, D.C.]

Subject: Request of Navy for loan of flying instructors.

The question has been brought up by Admiral Stark as to the possibility of our loaning them some flying instructors for a period of a few months. He had understood that we had more pilots than planes and they were in need of instructors. I do not know whether he is referring to primary instructors or basic, but if we have any men that might be spared for this purpose for two or three months, it might be a fine gesture from you to the Navy and for the War and Navy Departments in meeting certain criticisms of Congress.
