LCDR Chevalier was Naval Aviator #7

LCDR Chevalier was the first US Naval Aviator to land a plane on an Aircraft Carrier - October 26, 1922

Writing about a flight with Ensign Godfrey DeC. Chevalier, Arthur Ruhl of the New York Tribune wrote, ?he turns an aeroplane into a sentient being as blithe and carefree as himself?We have been to another world and back [and] he still seems a little apart and resplendent, touched with the radiance of that thin, upper ether.
