You and Graham Aviation - Part 3

flight

Here you take a fledgling, student and, 165 cockpit hours later, watch him leave for basic school to check out confidently in a jet trainer. You are the pilot who soloed him in the T-34 and, 40 hours later, taught him the elements of the air through 100 hours in the T-28. Or perhaps you taught him “blind” flying with 25 hours in the Link trainer. You may have been the “pilot” of his dispatch desk, or the man who heaped more safety into his training. Whichever, YOU give to Graham Air Base: SKILL.

THE HEAD SHED: pilot instructor school, flying safety, sqn. office, ops, dispatch, weather, records

When a student soloes… everybody helps! - - from parachute riggers… to the Link Instructor who readied him downstairs for instrument time upstairs. 

academics

Within the modern school building, you open a new field to each Graham student: aeronautics. You teach the primary newcomer the theories he will put into practice throughout his flying career, the formulas for military flying, even the character qualities the Air Force asks of him as an officer. YOU give to Graham Air Base: KNOWLEDGE.

‘p.t.’

Here the nation’s air begins its physical buildup upon your scheduling board. You keep each GAB graduate vigorously strong… Self- defense trained, and slanted toward a continued active sports life with new Social sports learned here. YOU give to Graham Air Base: PROWESS. 

Within these offices, you help the 3300th’s training officers give to Graham students: AIR FORCE LEADERSHIP.

You are part of a vast keep- em-flying crew that lives by a life- giving slogan: “Quality must be put into a product; it cannot be inspected into it. “ YOU give to Graham Air Base: CONFIDENCE.

“UPSTAIRS CREW:” inspection, records, tech orders…

BASE SHOPS: city of specialists: props, radios, electrical, engines, fabrics, tires, instruments, hydraulics, sheet metal, batteries and welding.
