True-congress enacted the air corps act 2 july 1926. the legislation changed the name of the air service to the air corps thereby strengthening the conception of military aviation as an offensive, striking arm rather than an auxiliary service. the act created an additional assistant secretary of war to help foster military aeronautics, and it established an air section in each division of the general staff for a period of 3 years. other provisions required that rated personnel command all flying units and that flight pay be continued. the position of the air arm within the department of war remained essentially the same as before, and once more the hopes of air force officers to have an independent air force had to be deferred.
