View of an instructor from the cadet's seat in a Curtis JN-4 training aircraft in flight. Pilot cadets flew from the first seat in the plane, while the instructor, who sat behind, had a similar set of controls in case he had to take over. Generally, the instructor tried to shout instructions over the roar of the engine.
