Approved For Release 2006/12/04: CIA-RDP84-0078OR000400350042-6 ARLENE DAVIS 1899-1964 Among the many thousands associated with aviation today only a fewv, know that the growth of our acro- space industry to its present dominant position as the greatest air power in the world, was due chiefly to the untiring effort and indefatigable determination of a loyal cadre which led aviation's struggle for survival to ultimate victory. History records the names of great Americans who led the fight: the Wrights, Curtiss, Bcllanca, Sikorsky and Piper; Victory, Mac Cracker, Lindbergh, Doo- little and Post, to name but a few. Among them were women: Law, Stinson, Farhart, Oinlic, Nichols, Coch- ran-and Arlene Davis. A pilot for 35 years, Arlene held single and multi engine ratings and an instrument ticket. Early in her career she participated in many air races and aviation competitions. Later she dedicated her enthusiasm and dynamic energy to assisting the feeble aviation indus- try in the dark years of the '30s, giving generously of her time, knowledge and money to many aviation organizations, among them the 'National Aeronautics Association which she served as an officer or a director for the remainder of her life. Intensely interested in aviation education, Arlene was one of the strongest protagonists of the National Aerospace Education Council, assisting in its original organization and serving on the NAFC Board of Directors. In 1960 Arlene flew her Recch 'T'ravel Air across the Atlantic by the northern route, toured Eu- rope in the airplane, then flew home via Dakar and South America. The bright flame of vibrant life burned high and clear in Arlene's small, fragile body. When the cancer appeared she fought it fiercer. with her strong will and unconquerable spirit. She was still fighting when she returned to the hospital for the last time in June. She refused to grant that the flame was dimming, and her courage held an impregnable barrier against the increasing pain. iA'lercifulh,, in the gray dawn of July 5, 1964 the tiny- flame expired and Arlene Davis' life had ended. Although the many significant contributions Arlene Davis made to the progress of aviation will always he monuments to her memory, her friends need no re- minder. To them Arlene was and will always be America's first Lady of Aviation. ^ Approved For Release 2006/12/04: CIA-RDP84-00780R000400350042-6 Approved For Release 2006/12/04: CIA-RDP84-0078OR000400350042-6 MARILYN C.

HIGH HONOR TO MARILYN LINK Aviation Education Leader Receives Brewer Trophy Miss Marilyn Link received the coveted Frank C. Brewer Trophy at the concluding banquet of the 1964 National Aerospace Conference at the Mayflower Ho- tel in Washington, June 27. The Conference elected as its president for the next year Dr. Leslie Bryan, Director of the Institute of Aviation at the University of Illinois. Dr. Bryan also served as NAEC's president in 1952. Retiring president William C. I linkley pre- sided at the banquet attended by many leaders in civil, military and federal aviation fields. The Trophy was established in 1943 by the late Frank G. Brewer of Birmingham, Alabama in honor of his two sons and the young men who flew in World War II. Miss Link, the twenty-first recipient of the Trophy, was chosen from a field of nine nominees by a committee of 21 prominent aviation and education leaders headed by Joseph T. Gcuting, Jr., of Aero- space Industries Association. The Brewer Trophy is an annual award and the winner is selected from a slate of nominees who have made "the most out- standing contribution to the development of Air Youth in the field of education and training." Miss Link has been a teacher, a lecturer in aero- space education and a director of aerospace education workshops, in her early work which was done in New Jersey and Nebraska. In 1953 she was made Executive Secretary of the Link Foundation and was assigned as Special Assistant to the Director of the National Air Museum in the Smithsonian Institution. During a short period of time since then Miss Link was Special Assistant to the President of the General Precision Equipment Corporation, but in more recent years has extended her educational service as Ex- ecutive Secretary of the Link Foundation and in com- mittee and other assignments with such organizations as the University Aviation Association, the National Aerospace Education Council, the National Pilots As- sociation and the Aviation/Space Writers Association. Miss Link is now the Special Assistant, Public Re- lations for Mohawk Airlines as well as being the Ex- ecutive Secretary of The Link Foundation. She has written widely for youth and for teachers in the fields of aerospace education. One of her most outstanding publications is, undoubtedly, Masters of the Air, which was published and distributed by the Smithsonian Institution. This boot: was prepared by Miss Link for the many high school youths who visit the Air Museum. At the present time she is working with 18 colleges and universities throughout the United States which are carrying out educational research programs in the field of aerospace, with the financing of these pro- grams being paid in part or in toto by the Link Foun- dation. Miss Link is one of the founding members of the National Aerospace Education Council, has been al- most continuously on its Board, and at the present time is on the Board of that Council. ^ Marilyn Link receives trophy from NAEC President William Hinkley, left, and Bill Ong, NAA President.

In its operation the Institute carries on the same general functions as the Univer- sity as a whole-educational, research, and public- servicc activities. Most of these are carried on at the University of Illinois-Willard Airport which is op- erated for the University by the Institute of. Aviation. Educational Functions The University of Illinois-Willard Airport is, in its major use, essentially an off-campus educational labo- ratory. As such it is closely analogous to the science laboratories on the campus. In the case of flight courses, for instance, the class work is given on the campus and the student then goes to the Airport for the flight-laboratory instruction. Other laboratory work done at the Airport includes the activities of the State Water Survey in meteorologic research and of the aviation psychology laboratory. The Airport also functions as a laboratory for the College of Com- inerce and Business Administration and the College of Engineering. At the Airport, the Institute of Aviation offers four courses of study: (1) the Aircraft Maintenance Cur- riculuin, (2) the Professional Pilot Curriculum, (3) the Aviation Electronics Curriculum, and (4) general flight training courses. About half of the flight students are other than students who are primarily enrolled in the Institute. In addition, the Institute offers (light training to selected Army and Air Force ROTC stu- dents. The Aircraft Maintenance Curriculum prepares the student to become a technician who can perform or supervise the maintenance of aircraft and engines. It also gives him a fundamental background of knowl- edge for sales, service, operations, flight engineering, and management in the aviation industry. This two- year curriculum has Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) approval under Air Agency Certificate No. 3364. Class- work is performed in well-e(luippcd shops and labo- ratories at the Airport. Approximately 25 per cent of the graduates of this curriculum enroll in other col- leges of the University and successfully complete the requirements for a bachelor's degree. The Institute cannot begin to supply the demand for the graduates of this curriculum. The Professional Pilot Curriculum consists of 12 to 24 credit hours in the Institute, depending upon the number of flight courses taken, and also of integrated courses in several basic areas of knowledge in the Di- vision of General Studies. Upon completion of this two-year course the student receives a certificate awarded by the University, plus the pilot certificates and ratings awarded by the FAA. The Aviation Electronics Curriculum seeks to train a technician who has a thorough knowledge of both the theoretical and applied aspects of basic and ad- vanced electronics. He is prepared to interpret and implement the engineer's plans which are involved in the construction and testing of complex electronic devices found throughout the aerospace industry. This is also a two-year program. General flight training is open to all students and staff members of the University. During the past year, more than 300 FAA certificates and ratings were earned by the flight students. Since the start of the flight-train- ing program in 1946, nearly 6,000 students, including approximately 300 faculty, have been trained. As Air Examining Agency No. I, the Institute certificates private and commercial pilots and rates multi-engine and instrument pilots by its own exami- nations and tests. In addition, helicopter and instructor rating courses are given. The Institute, through its Staff Air Transportation Service (SATS), renders valuable assistance to many thousands of extension students throughout the state. Where it is difficult to bring the student to the campus, it is often easier to take the professor to the student. This the SATS does as well as providing an airplane pool for those traveling on other University- busi- ness. Were it not for the saving in time by flight to and from the extension centers, many excellently qualified staff members would be unable to fulfill the extension teaching assignments they now routinely complete in locations from Rockford to East St. Louis.

Research Functions I lie Institute ( f Aviation has an outstanding) rec- +Wd in the area of research. From experiments with easily visible iluore--scent paint on N1 ingtips to experi- ments wftli flight by periscope, a forerunner of our astronautic flights, the University has becotre inter- nationally famous for its aeronautical research, much of 'a Inch is done at the Airport. One outsrmdiny research contribution vya, the inn- portant "IHOI)egree turn Experiment." -the pro- ecdures, which v,cre developed by Institute of kvia- iion staff members, enable noninstrument pilots who have inadvertently gotten into bad --,weather to make a !80-degree Turn out of the bad weather and return safel,r to contact digiht conditions. Alany letters have been received fronn pilots throughout the United ',states who are alive today because they practiced the inlple lifesaving procedures. "Parachute Flares as an Aid in Nliilit Forced I,and- ings" Was widely acclaimed as an additional lifesaving procedure for general aviation pilots. Amain, the tnerhods were developed by the University's aviation 'rail members. Mauch of the aeronautical research of the Uniyer- ,itv, instead of being- done by the Institute itself, is ,-hanneled into other departments which have the ,tafl, the facilities, and a closely related interest in the prohleln. For instance, the Institute of Aviation has assisted the College of Agriculture in planning crop dusting demonstrations. Facilities and space have been provided for the Department of :'aeronautical and Astronautical F.ngincering for their research on jet engines. the Psychology Department has utilizer] not oily the Institute's aircraft and pilots, but also its rodents in many of it,, research efforts. the Institute Also provides space at the Airport to the Psarholorgy ,taff and students for their use as offices and lobo- f'atories in research in aviation psychology. I he Institute's aircraft have played a major role in living radio-active isotopes from Oak Ridge, I en- nessee, to the L.fniversitv's fanned Betatron Laboratory. 1Iuch equipment and personnel have been tlovt n to t ;rear Bear Lake in Canada for ennpluvment at a racking- station .which is maintained by the federal government but supervised by university scientists. The Institute of Aviation aircraft maintenance shops are always busy. Aircraft are maintained on a "p'sventive maintenance" basis. All have radios and many are fully equir ped for VFR flying. A machine shop, instrument shoo. and propeller sF Dp are also a part of the facilities. Institute of Aviation students in tF a accessory laboratory. Since 1947 the Institute has beer providing A&P mechanics for the aviation industry.

Approved For Release 2006/12/04: CIA-RDP84-00780R000400350042-6 Approved For Release 2006/12/04: Cl Extensive research on cloud formations and rainfall is presently being conducted by members of the State Water Survey at the Airport. Not only does the In- stitute of Aviation provide the necessary laboratory facilities, but it has also specially equipped a twin- engine Beechcraft for a flying laboratory. Because the meteorologic staff has been able to carry on its re- search in such a unique wvay, the research results have been highly gratifying. The Institute has also worked closely with the Col- lege of Medicine in the areas of pressurization and high-altitude effects on the human body. The College of Education has planned and scheduled numerous seminars and courses in aviation education. The Insti- tute has aided by offering orientation flights to the students. The College of Commerce and Business Adminis- tration has made use of the Airport facilities and equipment as a laboratory for the students enrolled in the courses of air transportation and airline manage- ment. The additional opportunities made available to these commerce students tend to increase their pro- fessional knowledge and practical experience even be- fore they are graduated from the University. In all, more than forty different divisions of the University have benefited from the research availa- bility of the Airport. Public Service Functions The Institute and cooperating staffs have, in addi- tion to their primary research and educational func- tions, made available to the community certain of the facilities of the Airport without charge either to the taxpayers or the state or to the surrounding com- munity. These facilities are available on the basis of the otherwise unused capacity of the runways and of the terminal building. The income thus received from Ozark Air Lines has been sufficient, when added to the legitimate charges against the University-use-for- education-and-research purposes, to cover the op- erating costs of the Airport. For the citizens of Champaign-Urbana, and for those individuals who come from all over the United States to visit the University of Illinois, the Airport pro- vides necessary facilities for commercial flights. Ozark Air Lines provides 13 flights each day in and out of the Airport. Over 2,500 passengers a month embark at the University Airport. For the calendar year 1963, of 255 similar facilities the FAA ranked the University Airport as the 73rd busiest in the nation in total aircraft operations, and as the most active air operation in downstate Illinois. For many years, the Airport has been used by the Illinois Wing of the Civil Air Patrol as its primary base for its annual Search and Rescue training. It is also used as an auxiliary field for the Air National Guard and the flying branch of the State National Guard. People from all over the world have come to the University of Illinois to discuss the University's air Institute students in airframe, engine, and electronics take a balanced course of practical and laboratory work. Some report writing and li- brary work is also required. A corner of the library is shown here. operation with Institute staff members and have taken back with them ideas and plans to improve their countries' aviation systems. The three most recent distinguished visitors have been Prince Sissouphan- nouvong, Director of Civil Aviation for the Kingdom of Laos, Mr. Isaac Sy, Director of Civil Aviation for the Republic of Mali, and ,'Vlr. Oscar Denis of the Republic of Argentina. One of the major public service aspects of the Uni- versity Airport is the impetus given to business and pleasure flying. At present the Airport has 32 T- hangars and one large hanger which are rented to local businessmen. Over the years, the Institute and its staff have co- operated with the National Aerospace Education Council which has received so much aid from NAA. I lad NAA done nothing else during its period of co- operation, its influence through N Ah.C on the teachers of the youth of this country has been beyond measure. Vested Responsibility The University of Illinois, through its Institute of Aviation and its cooperation with other divisions of the University, has tried to live up to the responsi- bilities which it believes it has in the four fields of general education, professional education, vocational education, and research. In general education, its re- sponsibility lies in the enrichment of liberal arts courses, the development of a general course on the broad impact of aviation upon society, and the en- ricluncnt of guidance procedures. In professional edu- cation, the University has offered courses in engineer- ing, business administration, and teacher training with emphasis upon aviation. In the vocational field the Uni- versity has provided terminal courses in aircraft main- tenance, electronics, and flight training. In research and public service, every effort has been made to serve and advance the frontiers of knowledge. ^ Approved For Release 2006/12/04: CIA-RDP84-0078OR000400350042-6 Approved For Release 2006/12/04: CIA-RDP84-007808000400350042-6 The start of a record flight.
