Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society: Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame Members and Trophy

Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society: Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame Members

The Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame was created to commemorate and preserve outstanding aviation contributions made in Virginia or by Virginians. Many individual efforts have resulted in the pioneering, growth, or development of aviation and aerospace and must be recorded for future generations. Each year, the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society Board of Directors selects one or more individuals for recognition and induction into the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame.
