On this Day 13 October 1959, Observer School moves to Hal Far, Malta
On 13 October 1959, the Observer School moved from RNAS Culdrose to Hal Far with 750 NAS and conducted observer training there with nine Percival Sea Prince T.1 flying classrooms. The major task of the school was to provide a basic training to both Supplementary and General List officers before they progressed to their specialist operational flying schools at various RN stations in the UK. Observer School students were expected to achieve 100 hours in the Sea Prince and by the end of the course they would have attained a high standard in Air Navigation, Simple Radar Operating and Communications.
