  • Short Summary

    Italian teenagers learn how to fly a glider.

  • Description

    Story about an Italian aviation school.

    M/S of a group of Italian teenage boys standing and listening to an instructor. He has a small training glider which he seems to be demonstrating. The functions of the joystick are explained. The instructor (who is dressed all in white) sits on the glider. One of the boys sits on the glider and is strapped in by a friend. Another boy sets the "catapult" and the boys pull the glider along.

    Various shots of the boys pulling on ropes (they are all bare chested by the way!) the catapult is released and the glider flies off. We see another glider being catapulted. Story seems incomplete.

    An item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 598.

    Safety print exists.
