The National Aviation Hall of Fame

Dedicated to honoring and preserving the history of outstanding air and space pioneers, the Aviation Hall of Fame was established in Dayton, Ohio, on October 5, 1962, with five Daytonians as its founding fathers: James W. Jacobs, Gregory C. Karas, John A. Lombard, Larry E. O'Neil, and Gerald E. Weller. The first annual enshrinement ceremonies were held in December that same year. The United States Congress passed Public Law 88-372 in July 1964 granting the NAHF a national charter.
