Once primary flight training was completed, it was time to move on to Douglas Army Air Field in Douglas Arizona to learn to fly twin engined aircraft.  These planes were more powerful and more complex.  They used a crew instead of a pilot and an instructor.  This was a very necessary step before going to the huge four engine B-17 Bombers.
