Deer Valley History
Deer Valley Municipal Airport
was built in 1960 as a private airfield with a single runway. This simple facility had no control tower and very limited amenities. In 1971, the City of Phoenix purchased the 482 acre site. Operations began inauspiciously, with a temporary air traffic control tower sitting atop a four foot mound of dirt. Locals joked that the mobile unit looked more like a hot dog stand. They were not too far off. The aging piece of equipment was actually being used as a hothouse for growing tomatoes before being called back into service for the airport.
In 1975, a NEW terminal was constructed and the FAA began directing air traffic. Moving into a modern control tower, the FAA replaced Deer Valley's four hard working radio operators with 26 air traffic controllers. The airport also became home to the Phoenix Police Department who utilize a 12,000 square foot hangar for their citywide helicopter operations.
The Phoenix City Council adopted a Master Plan for the airport in 1986. The plan called for improvements that would enable Deer Valley to accommodate a wider range of aircraft. Lengthening the south runway was its first focus and would allow the airfield to support over 90% of the nation's general aviation fleet. Other major improvements followed, including utility enhancements, storm drain construction, apron paving, extension of the north runway/taxiway system and the addition of hangars and covered tie-downs. In total, $17 million was invested to turn the modest airfield into a modern, full service airport. Since then, an additional 469 T-hangars have been constructed on the airport's north side, and the main runway has been reconstructed. Careful planning and a clean, contemporary design has earned Deer Valley Airport recognition as one of the nation's finest general aviation airports.

At 4:10 PM on July 16, 1935, the City of Phoenix became the proud owner of Sky Harbor Airport. For $35,300 cash and a $64,700 mortgage, the City purchased 285 acres of land and a few buildings from the Acme Investment Company.
In the 1930's, Sky Harbor was not the aviation hub it is today. Sky Harbor was isolated and rural. In fact, Sky Harbor's nickname during the early days was "The Farm."

Pre-Flight History
No study of flight would be complete without a reading of the mythological characters of Daedalus and Icarus.
On A Wing and A Prayer

Many people throughout history have tried to fly by jumping from heights and hoping that something would keep them afloat like the birds, bats and bees. Occasionally the person would land safely and preserve the idea that flight by man alone was possible. More often the results were tragic. Aviation History The modern world of flight is the culmination of the efforts of many individuals over many decades of time. Flying has been a source of fascination to man since the time of the early Greeks. To the Ancient Greeks, flight was attributed to the Gods. History of Flight Man's passion to fly must have originated in prehistoric times. The beauty and freedom of soaring birds has always drawn our admiration and envy. The freedom to move in any direction over all obstacles is a capability that all of us would enjoy. Early attempts to defy gravity involved the invention of ingenuous machines, such as ornithopters

'Brothers in Flight'
Throughout the history of flight, teams of ' Brothers ' have played pivital roles in its development. Gaston and Rene Caudron ; John and Reginald Duigan ; Jack, Keith and Bruce Hearn ; Walter and Reimar Horten ; Henri and Maurice Farman ; Edouard and Charles Nieuport ; Leon and Robert Morane ; Oswald, Horace and Eustace Short ; Gabriel and Charles Voisin and of course, Orville and Wilbur Wright. However, while the world primarily focuses on one day in December 2003, the so named 'Centennial of Flight', the Hargrave website has decided to look at the role of the model aeroplane in aviation history.
In this Centennial year of the Wright Brothers first flight, this website will avoid the obvious and instead, examine the role of the model aeroplane in aviation history. Whether created as a scale prototype, or miniature or simply a catalyst for fun and recreation, the history of the model aeroplane closely parallels the history of flight. We are now seeing tiny unmanned aircraft carrying man's 'senses' aloft and soon, nanoscale devices, small enough fly though our bodies combating disease.

The History
of Aviation
Modern Rocketry Introduction The X-1 and the sound barrier Robert Goddard The X-15 - To the edge of space ... Sputnik - The Space Race begins
The twentieth century marked a turning point for mankind, from the industrial age to the space age. Some may argue that we are in the information age and if so, it was brought about through the knowledge and technology gained from our aviation, rocket and space pioneers. The rapid transfer of information today cannot and would not have occurred, for example, without satellites and satellites could not have occurred without aviation and rocket technology. And soon, early in the 21st century, these two technologies will converge to produce an aerospace plane that will make traveling to space as commonplace as airline travel is today. This is not a detailed history of all aviation or rocketry but only those events that led mankind toward spaceflight. Aviation history began on December 17, 1903 at 10:35 a.m. from Kill Devil hill outside the village of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Orville Wright took off, in the face of a 27 mile-per-hour wind, and covered 120 feet in 12 seconds during the world's first powered, sustained, and controlled flight. He had "won" this place in history from his brother, Wilbur, by a flip of a coin.

In April 1915, the AB-2 flying boat was successfully catapulted from a barge by Lieutenant Patrick N. L. Bellinger at Pensacola, Fla. The catapult used had been designed in 1913 by Lieutenant Holden C. Richardson, CC, USN, and fabricated at the Washington Navy Yard. The success of this and subsequent launchings led to installation of the catapult aboard ship.

The Naval Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1920 provided for the conversion of the collier Jupiter,shown in this photo, into a ship specifically designed to launch and recover airplanes at sea - an aircraft carrier - later to be named Langley. The engineering plans for this conversion were modified in November and included catapults to be fitted on both the forward and after ends of the flying-off deck. The USS Langley was placed in commission at Norfolk, Virginia, on March 20, 1922, as the Navy's first aircraft carrier.

Division History
During the 1920’s, the General Assembly of North Carolina enacted the first aeronautical statutes to guide airmen and local governments in their activities. A review of the current North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 63 shows that many of the provisions enacted during that period are still in force today. While information is sketchy about state government’s role in early aviation, it is known that the state had some type of aviation advisory committee from shortly after the end of World War II until about 1960. The role of this group was apparently to assist in developing policies for state government and evaluating the long term effects of this rapidly growing mode on North Carolina and its citizens. In 1958, Congress passed the Federal Aviation Act to create an independent Federal Aviation Agency and to provide federal funding for airport development. Shortly after this, North Carolina disbanded its advisory committee, believing that the federal role would negate any need for the states to be involved in aviation. By the mid-1960’s, it became obvious that the federal emphasis would be on large airports and that small community airports served exclusively by general aviation would not receive a lot of national assistance. At the same time, the explosive growth of business aviation made it mandatory that a community have good airport access in order to be competitive for new industries and their jobs. While eastern North Carolina was blessed with numerous surplus military training fields, the central and western portions of the state had very little in the way of a small community airport system.

History of Marine Corps Aviation
1950's - Technological Development
History of Marine Corps Aviation AcePilots Main Page WW2 Marine Aces Both in Korea and Japan, the period was one of intensive training, including landing exercises and joint exercises with the Army and the Air Force, concentrating on bombing and gunnery. One program within the wing was an exchange program between Japan-based and Korean-based squadrons. The objective of the program was to familiarize pilots new to the area with flight conditions in Korea, just in case the ceasefire didn't work out. In June 1956, the 1st MAW moved its headquarters to NAS Iwakuni, Japan, and control of the wing passed from the 5th AF to Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet (CinCPac), in Hawaii, thus ending Marine Aviation participation in the Korean police action. For Marine Aviation, this period between the Korean War and the major involvement of the U.S. in Vietnam in 1965 was characterized mainly by research and development. New aircraft in Marine Aviation reflected the tremendous effects of technological advances during the period leading up to Vietnam. The types which most advanced Marine Aviation capability during this nine year period were:
  • jet fighter and attack aircraft helicopters turboprop transport
It all began in 1947 with the commissioning of HMX- 1 at Quantico to develop the use of helicopters, and VMF-122 flying the first jet, the FH-1 Phantom at Cherry Point. These were closely followed by VMF-311 at El Toro in 1948, first with TO-1s (F-80Cs), the Lockheed Shooting Star jet indoctrination of experienced pilots, and then late in 1949 operating the F9F Panther for normal fighter/attack training.

A Manx Aviation History
The end of pleasure flying in 1920 meant that Manx skies rarely heard the sound of an aero engine for some years. The moat of the Irish Sea was still a formidable obstacle for private fliers and it required some commercial incentive to attract aeroplanes back to the Isle of Man. That incentive was provided by the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy Races which were now established as the most important motorcycling event in the world. Spectators were flocking to the Island to see the latest motorcycles being tested on the T.T. Course, as a multitude of manufacturing firms competed for supremacy. The internal combustion engine was a constant source of experiment and development and it has been claimed, with justification, that lessons learned on the T.T. Course were of benefit to the design of new aero engines. It was the 1925 T.T. meeting that brought a de Havilland DR 9 to Douglas, piloted by Mr. C. Barnard who found a suitable place to land on Douglas Head. The flight had been chartered by 'The Motor Cycle', the leading journal of its kind, to supply copies of its T.T. Edition to the news-hungry fans. This was repeated the following year by another DR 9, this time flown by Mr. G. L. P. Henderson. This became an annual event and the next two years saw a large field by the T.T. Grandstand being used with copies of 'The Motor Cycle' being on sale with the minimum of delay. There were no passengers on board when Captain Olley arrived with two mechanics on Tuesday, June 5th, at 4 p.m. having left Croydon at 12.30 and stopping at Manchester to refuel. At Ronaldsway, arrangements were made with Manx Petroleums Ltd., the local Shell agent, thus beginning a long association which continues today. Captain Olley then announced that flights in the Hampstead would be available on Thursday and Friday at 1016 a trip, while flights around the Island were £2. 12.6. Many local residents took the opportunity of their first flight before the airliner left after the Senior T.T. on Friday.
