  Welcome to the Website of the Davis-Monthan Airfield Register
PLEASE NOTE: The original Davis-Monthan Municipal Airfield, where the Register lived for a decade and which is the subject of this website, is in no way related, except in name and approximate geolocation, to the operations of the present-day Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
It records, in pilots' and passengers' own handwriting, their flight activities in and out of the Airfield for more than a decade during "The Golden Age of Aviation".
At Tucson during this time, the forces of history, geography and time melded with the makers and actors of early aviation, and their marks in the log call on us to pay tribute to their presence and to their deeds.

 Airfield Seizure Combat Health Support
The danger arises from the fact that, during airfield seizures, paratroopers typically conduct a parachute assault deep into enemy territory in the midst of a pitched battle and are at great risk of incurring multiple injuries and wounds.
The 82d Airborne Division’s mission is to “deploy worldwide within 18 hours of notification, execute a parachute assault, conduct combat operations, and win.” Seizing an airfield is critical to the success of their combat operations.
Airfield seizures are executed to secure key terrain that can be used to create a lodgment that will enable the continuous flow of combat power and supplies into an area of operations.
