May 1965 the 522nd Fighter Squadron equipped with A-1s was activated at Tan Son Nhut AB.
In August 1965 the 524th Fighter Squadron equipped with A-1s was activated at Nha Trang AB.
In August 1965, 4 USAF B-57B Canberras operating from Da Nang AB were nominally transferred to the RVNAF becoming their first jet aircraft. Six Vietnamese pilots had already been checked out in the B-57B, and there were fifteen more with jet training, along with about forty mechanics. These pilots could join in strikes against the Viet Cong; and later they, along with the mechanics, could form the nucleus of a Vietnamese F5 squadron that was then being considered.The RVNAF never officially took control of the aircraft, and, after accidents and other problems, including apparent claims by RVNAF pilots that the B-57 was beyond their physical capabilities, the program was terminated in April 1966, and the aircraft were returned to their original USAF units.
In December the 217th Helicopter Squadron moved from Tan Son Nhut AB to Binh Thuy AB.
By the end of 1965 there were 13,000 men and 359 planes in the RVNAF, numbers that would not change substantially until the 1970s. Of the 5 tactical wings, 2 were in III Corps (Bien Hoa AB and Tan Son Nhut AB) and a single wing was in each of the other Corps (at Da Nang, Pleiku and Binh Thuy). There were 6 fighter squadrons with a total of 146 A-1 Skyraiders. The 4 H-34 helicopter squadrons and 4 O-1 liaison squadrons were up to strength and 2 of the 3 planned transport squadrons of C-47s were operational. This was as large a force as the country could afford, and it was deemed sufficient to defend postwar South Vietnam. Until that day arrived, the US could handle any additional requirements. Besides these tactical wings, the RVNAF had a logistics wing at Bien Hoa AB, a base support group at Pleiku AB and its Air Training Center at Nha Trang AB. The RVNAF was flying 2900 combat sorties per month in support of the ARVN
