Preliminary Design Study of a National Program for Training Skilled Aviation Personnel.
Arizona State Univ., Tempe.
This study supplementing a 1967 study of Arizona State University, recommends preliminary plans for the design of a national training center capable of accommodating 2,200 fliers and aviation technicians and the steps that should be taken to complete the facility by September 1972. Specific recommendations are: (1) negotiations between the Aviation Research and Education Foundation and the Gela River Indian Community for the leasing of land, and between the Foundation and the Williams Air Force Base for access to a site for engineering studies until the Air Force releases the site, (2) initiation of action by the foundation for site development and construction of flight facilities to permit training operations by September 1969, (3) initiation by the university of action to permit operation of academic and residential facilities by September 1970, and (4) finalization of the financial plan and solicitation of funds from the appropriate agencies. Major sections treat educational objectives, facilities requirements, site development, and financial planning. Extensive drawings are included. (JK)
