The San Angelo Air Corps Basic Flying School, located at Goddfellow AFB, Texas, was officially established on 17 August 1940. On 11 June 1941, in dedication to a young hero and in tribute to the community that shaped him, the base was officially renamed Goodfellow Field.
Goodfellow train pilots through the post war era, primarily for large multi-engine piston and turboprop aircraft, first on the AT-6 Texan and then, beginning in 1954, on the twin-engine TB-25 and B-25 Mitchell. On 3 September 1958, with nearly 20,000 aviators to its credit, Goodfellow graduated its last class of pilots.
