How ACU’s Historic Campus Changed the World
Almost a year before Pearl Harbor, in January 1941, construction began on an airstrip 20 miles northwest of downtown Phoenix. Rising from empty desert, Thunderbird Field became a civilian primary flight school under the supervision of the United States Army Air Corps. Within three months, the skies around Glendale buzzed with training planes from dawn until dusk. By June 1945, over 8,000 cadets passed the tough training course, eventually becoming fighter and bomber pilots who served the Allied powers in WWII. Keeping the pilots flying took a dedicated support staff, including the men and women who pulled all night maintenance shifts in the hangers, to keep the planes safe and ready to fly each morning. ACU is honored to keep the memory and example of these men and women alive, and to preserve three WWII era buildings, including the Control Tower and Hanger.
