My friend, Mr. Ho, is currently petitioning for resettlement in the US.
In his last interview, he was asked to present a Certificate of
Completion for a Helicopter Maintenance and Repairman in an Air Force
Base in Virginia in 1969. Mr. Ho does not remember the name of the
school. What he remembers is from the base to Washington D.C. it's
about one day bus drive. Mr. Ho does not have any paperwork associated
with the training he had in the US for that year as they were all
burned in 1975 when South Vietnam collapsed for fear of persecution.

I hope you can gear me to the right direction. If you need further
information. Please contact me via email or
telephone (310) 223-0370

If this is not the right group to post this message, please provide a

If he's sure it was an Air Force Base, and in Virginia, then
Langley AFB is about the only choice. Down in the Hampton
Roads/Norfolk/Tidewater area, it is only a 3-, 4-hour max drive
from DC. Even the commercial bus doesn't take but about 5-,
5-1/2 hours. AFAIK, Langley has generally been about fighters
and R&D - missiles, mainly - and not helos. But there may be
some reason they could have done helo maintenance training there
during the VN war for some reason that would make sense only to
the Air Farce.

Helicopter Maintenance and Repairman? AF in 1969 had few helicopters.
Training for helo pilots had already moved to Ft. Wolters under the
Army. The term "Repairman" would never be used for a maintainer in the
USAF.

Maintenance school would be a "tech school" and all of those were
under Air Training Command at TTCs (Tech Training Centers)--places
like Lowry, Chanute, Lackland, Keesler. Certainly not at Langley and I
can't quickly think of another AF installation in VA.

If this guy were in the US, I might be thinking "wannabe".

While I don't know enough to correct nor confirm your Helo training
locations, I do know that in 1969 and 1970, Specialtists were called
Repairmen.

In 1969 the USAF was training it's helicopter pilots at Sheppard AFB, and
did so until mid-1971 when the Army assumed that role at Fort Rucker.

No other regular AF flying units, several ADC radar sites. The VA ANG at
Richmond was flying F-84Fs in 1969.

I looked at it. I think I am getting closer to my goal each day. Thank

He might have been mistaken about his location. Look into Wicheta Field, TX
as well. IN 69-70, I do know they were doing Chopper training for Foriegn
Troops at that time. I don't know if there was any maintenance training but
there was assuredly flight training.


Just remember, if it isn't on the internet, some will lead you to believe it
isn't so.
