The "AFA Falconer & Falcon" features a great deal of historic detailing, and was conceived and sculpted by Linda King (spouse of Harrison E. King, USAFA '60).The falconer wears the Academy's original Cadet Parade Uniform. The hat and jacket buttons include details of the Air Force emblems, and the landing falcon gives the sculpture a sense of movement. The falcon was chosen as the AFA mascot because of its speed, courage and powerful flight. The statue is on display at Doolittle Hall. Order your own piece of Academy history today.
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
