October 13, 2011 – EAA will recognize the contributions made to the world of flight by five aviators on Thursday, October 27, as it inducts them into the EAA Hall of Fame during a banquet at the EAA Aviation Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. These five aviators represent the spectrum of aviation within the EAA community and have achieved notable successes within their particular realm of flight: Jack McCornack of Cave Junction, Oregon, EAA Ultralight Hall of Fame; the late Tony LeVier of La Canada, California, International Aerobatic Club Hall of Fame; John W. Underwood of Glendale, California, Vintage Aircraft Association Hall of Fame; the late David B. Lindsay Jr. of Sarasota, Florida, Warbirds of America Hall of Fame; and Ed Fisher of Gilbert, South Carolina, EAA Homebuilders Hall of Fame.
“Each of these five individuals has made a unique contribution to the world of flight that has benefited all of us,” said Rod Hightower, EAA president and CEO. “These inductees serve as an example for everyone involved in flying and represent the best that recreational aviation has to offer. We recognize their commitment and passion for flying and are honored to welcome them into the EAA Halls of Fame.”
In addition, Fond du Lac attorney Louie Andrew will receive the Henry Kimberly Spirit of Leadership Award for his efforts on behalf of EAA and the local community.
A limited number of tickets remain for the dinner and program, which begins with a 6 p.m. reception. Tickets are priced at $50 each, with banquet tables and supporter levels also available. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit http://www.eaa.org/halloffame.
