Patrick Hotard, director of the British Flying Training School Museum, will speak at the Allen Public Library 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 29.  This confidential but crucial chapter of World War Two occurred in Terrell, Texas.  Thousands of British pilots learned to fly at six civilian training schools throughout the United States and the first of these was in Terrell. In the beginning, its mission was so secretive that even local citizens were unaware of its purpose.

The training of the pilots was vital to the war effort, and the museum preserves a collection of relevant artifacts including logbooks, training materials, uniforms, aircraft models, equipment, vintage photos, and memorabilia.

A former history instructor at South Arkansas Community College, Hotard coordinates educational programs and docent tours at the Terrell museum.
