It is the most looked-forward-to event of the year. The cadets ' training during this nine-day period will be patterned after Air Force Boot Camp. At the end of the encampment, every cadet vrho attended will receive a certificate of ac- complishment, which wUl help them in later life. At this time, the senior class would lil e to express its deepest appreciation and thanks to Mrs. Whitaker, Capt. Stallard, and Lt. Carroll for their time and patience as class sponsors. During the two semesters they have spent much of their free time to help us with car washes, bake sales and raffles, to raise money for our class trip. 1 would like to thank at this time, the FALCON staff, which has spent much time in making your yearbook. My special thanks to the FALCON assistant editor Tony Seran, without whose help, threatening, cajoling and diplomacy this yearbook would never have reached publication. We, the FALCON staff, hope that you wQl enjoy reading your yearbook over and over again throughout the coming years. DEDICATION When we of the Class of 1965 look back upon the pleasant years spent at Florida Air Academy, we cannot help but remember with awe the outstanding work of one man - Major John K. Davis. It is to him that we dedicate our yearbook. It is rare that one man is able to do well in a single job, but Major Davis excels in many. He is commandant, mathematics teacher, head baseball coach, guidance counselor, and ninth grade class advisor here at Florida Air Academy, He is imbued with a drive that will let him do no less than his best, in each and every undertaking. He devotes not only his working time to these jobs but his free time as well. This unselfishness is but one of the characteristics that will make us remember Major Davis. His unquestioned integrity lets us know that we can put our trust in him. We can only hope that we will be able to follow his teachings and pattern our- selves after him in some small measure. We extend our deepest appreciation to Major Davis. The Senior Class STAFF AND ADMINISTRATION PRESIDENT COL. JONATHAN DWIGHT hard-working, dynamic President who llow devoces his energy and enthusi- asm to two schools as successfully as to one. We miss his hill-time pres- ence, though! A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT: " Ave atcpie vale " to the Class of ' 65. Some of you have been with us since our first year - and have shared in, and contributed to, the tremendous growth of Florida Air Academy. The past year has seen two major events: the creation of a separate school at Plantation for the lower grades, and the addition of the CAP to our program. The Class of 1965 has provided FAA with splendid leadership in all fields - academic, athletic, and military. All of us here will follow your future progress with greatest interest, and we hope you will return to visit us often in the years ahead. Our best wishes go with you. HEADMASTER MAJOR JOHN K. DAVIS (see dedication) COMMANDANT LT. COL. VERNON J. HART Any one of Col. Hart ' s various func- tions here would be enough to keep another man busy full-time, yet he is never too busy for an encouraging word or sympathetic counsel.

HELEN KIEHL, ASSISTANT TO THE BURSAR, whose unfailing courtesy and pleasant manner helps keep the school on an even " keel. " MRS. MARY LOU STALLARD, " Girl Friday " to Col. Hart, puts in a full day in a very busy office. In addition, she keeps up cadet morale by making fre- quent trips from her office to Miss Pierce ' s. The cadets have followed her progress with interest, and hope that she continues as an integral part of FAA. 10 WE APPRECIATE! THE KITCHEN STAFF, who under Major Benney ' s able direction, make mealtime a happy time at FA A. Favorite foods are the fried chicken, beef stew, and those de- licious pastries. THE MAINTENANCE STAFF, who cheerfully tackle a job that can never be finished, that of keeping the school in repair. With 190 boys in school 24 hours a day, it sometimes seems that the cadet corps and the maintenance staff are working for opposite ends! Our thanks to the en- tire staff for their trouble and patience. And no listing of the FAA staff would be com- plete without . . . the only cadet S S in school who is never reprimanded for being AWOL, who is the only cadet allowed to run around during formations . . . George Ebel? no. Beagle. George Beagle is the owner of Major Davis, of whom he takes good care. In addition to this full-time job, George is also unofficial school mascot, a position he defends jealously against all challengers (especially cats). After all, where else can a dog lead a man ' s life? It is hoped that George will be around for many more years, and will lead the Beagles ' , er, Falcons ' teams onto greater victories! Quiet, cadets at work (for a change). CADET CORPS CANDID SHOTS Just trim the sides, Tony. Cadet corps participates in dedication of new Melbourne civic center.

THE SQUADRON STAFF The military this year has been greatly improved over last year, beginning with this year ' s O, C. S. training. All N. C. O. ' s and officers were required to attend and pass this training program which resulted in a greatly improved organization benefitting all con- cerned. All flights seemed to do well in some area of flight competition, " B " flight won overall honors while " HQ " flight won intramural activities. " A " and " C " flights, while failing to win any of the competition honors, did well in them. They were at their best in other areas not covered by flight competition such as bootlegging, hamburgers, tun- nel digging, etc. " B " flight, under the firm hands of its capable officers, won the title of honor flight, and was presented with a ribbon proclaiming it top flight in flight competition for the first semester. It is now a strong contender for the same title this semester. " A " flight, while failing to win the title of honor flight, is progressing slowly but surely toward this goal. " C " flight was at the bottom of the morale slump, as sometimes happens, but now has swung back into the routine. This flight has acquired the nickname " Gopher Flight " It showed its imagination and talent after the motion picture " Great Escape " was shown. Strange sounds were heard emanating from " C " flight after taps; upon investigation it was found that the cadets had dug a tunnel running the length of the flight! " HQ " flight has improved immensely from an unorganized detachment into a well trained and disciplined unit. We hope that they will continue to progress at their present rate. 53 a HQ " " HQ " FUght has been a close runner for the title of " Honor Flight " but has never received it. It has done very well in Civil Air Patrol tests and was rewarded by a trip in an Air Force transport. t A " " A " Flight under the command of Capt. Mc- Williams has proved it- self to be the best marching flight in the school. It wins almost every honor for march- ing and has been no- ticed by everybody. AtDff " B " FLIGHT " B " Flight has been on the top of most inspection results for the whole year and has been awarded the title of " Honor Flight " " C " FLIGHT This flight is better known as the " Gopher Flight " because of a little incident that occurred in January, which resulted in a tunnel from one end of Ander- son Hall to the other end. COLOR GUARD This year ' s Color Guard has participated in many a function such as the dedi- cation of the Sebastian Bridge, dedication of the new Civic Auditorium and the Veteran ' s Day parade. AIR POLICE These boys have been a common sight around Mel- bourne in their impressive uniforms, and have done a fine job of keeping the boys in good conduct on town leave. 56 DRILL TEAM One of F. A. A. ' s fine representatives of military precision is the DRILL TEAM, directed by Colonel Mulvanity and commanded by Capt. Bernie Goldstein. The DRILL TEAM performed at half time throughout the football season and at the Space Bowl. They have also performed at many other civic activities. DRUM AND BUGLE CORPS Under the supervision of Capt. Jones, the Drum and Bugle Corps has become a fine group of orga- nized marchers. These cadets have also performed in the football half time ceremonies and other civic activities. With W. O. Berryhill in command, they have learned many a new beat. MILITARY ,58 ATHLETICS FOOTBALL After all the shouting was over and the enthusiasm had died down, the cadets began to review the facts of the season. Under the leadership of quarterback Roger Basile, we did well during the season, winning six and losing three. The losses were to Eau Gallie, Satellite and Ocoee, class A and AA teams. With the hard running of Kurtz and McCrea, and the fine pass receiving of Ebel, the FALCONS were victorious over Cardinal Gibbons, St. Andrews, Melbourne CC, Ft. Pierce, Cocoa Beach and Clearwater CC. With the fine expert coaching of Coaches Wright and Massey, the FALCONS con- cluded another victorious season. 1964 SCHEDULE Fla.

BASEBALL The 1965 Baseball season will begin with the dedication of our new field that has been constructed during the year. This field will be named in honor of Major Davis, who has been head baseball coach at the academy since 1962. The 1965 season looks more promising than the previous seasons due to the fact that F. A. A. has grown so much in the last two years, and that more and more talent in baseball is showing up at registration time each year. This year our baseball team is comprised of many young boys that are doing very well at early practices.

Aspirants for the SWIMMING TEAM pose with Coach Burhans poolside. The season will open with a three-way match with Satellite and Mel Hi. With the large turnout of experienced swimmers, Coach Burhans expects a good showing even against the larger schools. WRESTLING wuh Capt, Ambellas continues as a spring sport by popu- lar demand. Difficulty of obtaining matches hampers Varsity status, but the sport is much enjoye d nonethe- less. TENNIS TEAM tryouts with Capt. Stallard as coach. FAA ' s star raquetman, Norman Holmes, Jr. , (pic- tured beside Capt. Stallard) has brought many vic- tories home for FAA in the past, and will go on to great fame in tennis, we are sure. His last tourna- ment victory put him in the No. 1 spot in the state for 16-and-under. MORE SPRING SPORTS 68 ACTIVITIES i FLYING JIM DANIELS, Flight Instructor, with student This year has seen a greater than ever interest in flying, with more cadets earning their " wings " than ever before. With the air- port less than 2 miles from school, " commuting " for lessons is easy, and many a flying lesson is squeezed in between English and Chemistry! Flight Instructor Jim Daniels and his assistant. Gene Asbury have earned the respect and friendship of all students. Far left: Capt.

Kurtz, N. Kurtz, Parks, Pate, Campbell, Giova, Reynolds, Sea- graves, Lind. Not Pictured: Seran, This year, the yearbook staff has worked exceptionally hard to put out a very outstanding yearbook. Contained in their yearbook are the activities of the year 1965. There have been many deadlines to meet, photographs to be taken and many people to interview. Our chief advisors have been Mrs. Emmy Dwight and Capt. Arabellas. The cadet corps sincerely wishes to thank the whole yearbook staff for the great amount of time and effort they have invested in it. NEWSPAPER STAFF SEATED: Snow, Diller, Martinez, Linda, Ellis. STANDING: Capt. Hoover, Munro, Clark, Rhodes, Kurtz, Watkins, Pope, McWilliams. The future newspaper men of F, A. A. did a fine job on the " FALCONIAN " under the watchful eyes of Capt. Stallard and Capt. Hoover. These news hounds assembled the newspaper in record time, (only a month late). They kept errors to a minimum and finally got the job done. The cadets greatly enjoyed the paper when it came out. It was one of the most looked-forward-to publications that the school put out. 71 THURSDAY SKINDIVING CLUB After the announcement that skin- diving lessons would be taught here in our own pool, Florida Ah had many enthusiastic boys turn out. After a free dive, the lessons com- menced. When this six weeks course was finished, they made their graduation dive at Silver Springs and also received their cer- tificates making them amateur divers. PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB Under the supervision of Capt. Ara- bellas, these amateur photographers have produced many fine prints. Much of the members ' free time was spent taking and developing these prints that were used in the newspaper, yearbook and other school publications. MODEL CLUB This year ' s model club has showed a great improvement over last year ' s, due to the fact that they were given more space, more time and better equipment. Under the direction of Maj. Davis, who has devoted much time and great patience, these boys have produced many a fine model. ACTIVITY CLUBS FISHING CLUB Under the leadership of Capt. Davis, Florida Air ' s expert angler, the ca- dets have become enthusiastic and expert fishermen. Numerous trips to the Canaveral jetties and Sebas- tian Inlet to exercise their talents have resulted in many fine catches. n li- ' ui; LETTERMEN ' S CLUB The varsity club is the latest addi- tion to our long list of clubs, at the academy. It contains all of the cadets that have lettered in one or more major sports. They have worked very hard in order to pay for their Varsity jackets. CHESS CLUB Capt. Mascia ' s chess club, which has combined sophistication with brains, has produced many exciting matches. They plan to meet with chess enthusiasts from other schools so that they can match wits and improve skills. SOCIAL LIFE AT FLORIDA AIR H 1 l JKi Kw ■tS H JpP n rl rf m JhH A.

FRONT: Brenda Eskew, Barbara Taylor, We wish to express our gratitude to the 1965 social comminee for greatly enriching our school year. They must be commended for the many fine social events they have given the cadets this year. Pep-Rallies were an excellent way of showing team support. Cadets enjoy one of our many social events. 74 1 964-HOMECOMING Sharon McAllister, 1963-64 Queen, greets 1964-65 Queen, Debby McClusky. A colorful dance ac- companies the Home- coming ceremonies. Cadet Major Don Diller escorts the new Queen from her throne. Colonel Jonathan Dwight crowns the new Queen during Homecoming dance. Norman Kurtz, for his performance during the Homecoming game, receives the Emmy P, Dwight Award for Outstanding Player. 75 Homecoming Queen dances with her escort, Jim Pea- cock. ' RING DANCE 1965 r -4 The Fourth Annual Ring Dance was held just before the cadets left for Christmas vaca- tion. The untiring seniors, who sponsored this dance, presented it in fine style. The decorations were extremely beautiful, especially the gigantic ring, which the seniors worked hard on during their free time. According to custom, each cadet, as he passed under the ring, received his class ring, accompanied by a traditional kiss from his date. 76 VARSITY CLUB VS. FAA FACULTY Varsity club ' s sexy cheerleaders lead a cheer for their boys. Coach Wright and Pete Copenhaver up for jump ball to begin game. Much individual revenge took place in this year ' s Varsity VS. Faculty game. As usual in a dictatorship the Faculty came out ahead, but not after a very trying game given them by the Varsity. There were also several comments made about the officiating! MONTE CARLO NIGHT The senior class held their fourth annual Monte Carlo night for the purpose of raising funds for the class trip to Miami Beach in May. Tony Seran has roulette wheel well under control. Cadets and their dates enjoy a game of bingo. 77 FLORIDA AIR ACADEMY CHEERLEADERS Left to Right - Sharon McAllister, Brenda Eskew, Patti Jacobs, Debbie Dwight, Janice Jameson, Sue Thistle, Barbie Taylor.

JUNO II MILITARY The first meeting of FAA and South ¥AA took place at the upper school ' s football game at St. Andrews, to which the entire lower school went to cheer the team to victory. South FAA registered as great a victory as the varsity - with a half- time display of military precision by the Drill Team and Drum and Bugle Corps that sent the senior boys scurrying back to Melbourne to polish up their own performance! The two schools met again at Homecoming in Melbourne, where the rivalry resulted in a draw (it was rumored that the " winning " teams would toss the " losing " teams in the pool, but all 4 units gave such fine performances before and at half-time that no one got wet! ) But the senior Falcons had learned that the juniors were definitely to be reckoned with! The word of SFAA ' s fine performances led to various units being invited to embellish many local functions in and around Plantation - a source of pride to us all.

The elementary team ' s touch football is played with every bit as much vehemence as is the 9th grade varsity ' s. An active intramural program is supplemented by games with neighboring schools, and a healthy rivalry is growing with such schools as Pinecrest and St. Andrews. Not to mention SFAA vs. FAA! Coach Toenes talks strategy with team Capt. Bossert The Varsity football team, comprised of 8th and 9th graders (shown below) was pitted twice against Pine- crest, twice against St. Andrews. We managed to beat Pinecrest a whacking 20-0 at the first encounter, but ended up with a 1-3 tally for the season. Just wait till next year, though!

In springtime, just about everybody ' s fancy turns to baseball 104 ACTIVITIES At South Florida Air, Activities cover the widest range imaginable, to satisfy every age and taste. Full advantage of the local points of interest is taken: sightseeing tours on the " Jungle Queen " on the waterways, a visit to Eastern ' s Jet Overhaul Base, and exciting pro hockey game, are some highlights to date. A week-end camp- ing trip (yes, really in tents! ) to Myakka State Park in Sarasota was an experience we ' ll never forget (collapsing tents and all) - we even managed a visit to the Ringling Museum. Social life is very active, too ... a social committee, composed of teachers, parents, and friends, sponsors a dance or special party at least once a month. Who can forget the very first weekend of school, when everyone went to the ice-skating rink in Lauderdale? Most of the boys had never been on ice skates before . . . need more be said? Some of the outstanding dances have been the Meet-the Cadet dance, the season ' s first, when the Corps got acquainted with Plantation ' s opposite sex, the Halloween masquerade dance, which showed what a lot of imagination and a little material can do, and the Valentine dance (see below).
