Paul Schlundt

Paul Schlundt Paul Schlundt as cadetThis site is dedicated to Paul Schlundt, who worked for 30 years accumulating the lists of cadets, personnel and trainers found above.┬áHis personal contact with the many men and women who served our country and who were involved in the Douglas 63rd AAF Flying Training Detachment led to volumes of correspondence and photos that documented the history of the Douglas 63rd. Much of the information in this site is possible because of the dedicated commitment of Paul Schlundt.

Additional information was obtained from Steven Burris, whose collection of WWII officer information has proven invaluable in expanding our knowledge of our cadets and what happened to them after they left the Douglas 63rd AAF FTD. Thanks also goes to Sue Harrington, who has spent countless hours searching for cadet information in MACRs, newspapers, and obituaries.

Contribute Cadet or Air Base Staff Information

We are looking for information about anyone that received their training at the 63rd Army Air Forces Flying Training Detachment in Douglas, Georgia or personnel who worked at the base. This would include, but is not limited to biographies, pictures, letters, and/or updated information about the individuals we do or do not have now. It is this kind of information that has helped us build our Douglas WWII Air Base Staff above and the Douglas 63rd Aviation Cadet database. Please contact us to arrange for contributions to our database.
