Moore Air Base, Moore Field, TX
Moore Field was opened on 20 September 1941 as an Army Air Forces Training Command single-engine training school. It was named for 2d Lt. Frank Murchison Moore, on 22 November. Moore was a native of Houston, who was killed in World War I. The 1,087-acre (4.40 km2) airfield was the home of the 503d, 504th and 506th school squadrons (Army Air Forces Pilot School (Advanced Single Engine) were the flying training units. The flying school was redesignated as the 2d Training Group in 1943.
The facility conducted advanced pilot training of 6,000 pilots using BT-13, PT-19, AT-6, P-36 and P-43 aircraft. The school was reorganized as the 2529th Army Air Force Base Unit (Pilot School, Advanced Single Engine) on 1 April 1944. The school and airfield were closed on 31 October 1945.
Contract flying base
In June 1954, after the closing of the sanatorium and as part of the Cold War military expansion by the United States, the United States Air Force Air Training Command announced that Moore Field would be reactivated as a contract pilot training school. Air Training Command had planned to reopen the base in 1954, but delayed the reopening 12 months due to a freeze in military construction budgets.
The 3301st Pilot Training Group (Contract Primary) was reassigned to Moore from Columbus AFB, Mississippi on 1 April 1955. Training was conducted by California Eastern Airways Incorporated, using T-28s and T-34s. In August 1959, Moore began using the jet-powered T-37 in place of the T-38s. With the upgrade to jet trainers, the contractor at the base was changed to Beiser Aviation Corporation.

Bal may perhaps be best characterized as "moody." When he is tired, he sleeps; when he feels ambitious, there is no holding him back. But when there is a job to be done, B.J. will always be the first to accomplish the desired ends. He is good natured, stubborn, and aggressive, and combines these characteristics in a manner which will make him an outstanding officer in the days to come.
