asked the Secretary of State for Air how many pilpts working with the Fleet can fly on and off aircraft carriers; and how many flights have taken place off the turrets of capital ships since 1st January, 1921?

Captain GUEST:

There are many pilots capable of flying on and off aircraft carriers. I do not think it would be in the public interest to give the numbers. The same consideration applies to statistics as to flying off turrets, but I may state that such flights have been rare during the period named.
