The Aviation Hall of Fame was founded in Dayton, Ohio in 1962 and chartered by the US Congress in 1964, to honor aviation’s outstanding pioneers for their contributions to aviation and the nation, to perpetuate their memory, and to record for posterity the excellence of their achievements. Where some aviation-oriented organizations emphasize aircraft events or technology, the NAHF focuses strictly on people…on the unique blend of ambition, innovation, and inspiration that gave wings to mankind’s pursuit of flight.
