"Flying Into Yesterday" SURVEY FORM
This survey is intended for use by anyone who has direct experience of, is related to, or has personal information about the Curtiss-Wright Cadettes. PLEASE answer only those questions for which you have concrete knowledge!
I welcome "informants" and actual participants in the Cadette Program to fill in some of the blanks about the Curtiss-Wright Company and how they created (and ran) this training for women - or how they ended it. I especially invite anyone who worked for the company or knows a Curtiss-Wright Cadette to respond. Answers you type on the lines in this document will be automatically sent to me for my cataloguing.
PICTURES: If you also upload a picture of relevance to this story, I will try to include it on the website on my THE CADETTES page so others can enjoy it, too.
VITAL: Please state whether the picture is copyrighted and whether you or someone else owns that copyright.
Upload Photo
Only upload one photo at a time. (5 MB max) Please provide 300 DPI resolution, if possible.
Thank you for taking the time to do this!


This survey form is ONLY for adding information about the Cadettes and/or by the Cadettes (and their descendants).
For comments on the book, please use the feedback form on the 'Contact Page'.

(Sorry, but if you don't fill in the information about yourself your survey will most likely be discarded. I will NOT share this information with anyone else!)

send in this form. It will save hours and hours of work on my end.

11. Do you have other information about the Curtiss-Wright Cadette Program you would like to share?
