Download PDF for this date

Five American cadets will go to Israel in June as part of a Civil Air Patrol exchange in which five Israel members of Gadna Avir, airwing of the pre-military youth organization, will be guests in the United States. The Israelis will remain here two or three weeks.

The Civil Air Patrol has invited leaders of Israel aviation to attend an international meeting in Lisbon on April 25. Invitations have been extended to the officers commanding the Israel Air Force, Gadna Avir, and the Civil Aviation Department. The U. S. air attache at the American Embassy in Israel will make available his plane for the Israelis to fly to Lisbon. After the Lisbon meeting, Maj. Gen. Lucas V. Beau, U. S. National Commander of the Civil Air Patrol, will fly to Israel for a visit.
