SAFETY TROPHIES WERE; awarded by Rear Admiral Ralph f

Davison, Chief of Naval Air Advanced Training, recently to two
squadrons which established the highest safety records in multi-en-
pined and single-engined! aircraft during the 1947 fiscal year. In

for VP-MS ATU No. 10, accepts the CNAAdTra Multi-Engine 'tS
Trophy from the Admiral on behalf of his squadron which had but
one minor beaching accident during the year. (Below) Rear Ad-
miral Davison presents the CNAAdTra Single-Engine Trophy to
Lt. Comdr. Guiseppi Macri, training officer of VA ATU No. 5. His

outfit logged more hours with less accidents than any of the other '.
