The history of aviation is marked by men and women who possessed the passion, leadership, and can-do spirit to ignore the known limits of possibility.
The EAA Sport Aviation Hall of Fame was established to honor the outstanding achievements of men and women who share the spirit of EAA's founder: a passion for the freedom that flight offers. Those inducted into the Hall of Fame are selected by their peers for the myriad of contributions made to their particular realm of flight - and aviation as a whole.
Bringing together EAA's boards of directors, divisions, affiliates, and councils, the Hall of Fame is a tribute to the pioneering spirit and innovation that has marked the evolution of flight, a spirit that is nurtured and promoted throughout EAA's membership. The event also reunites past honorees to celebrate their collected achievements.
Representing Homebuilders, Warbirds of America, International Aerobatic Club, Vintage Aircraft Association, and Ultralights, these inductees capture the spirit of EAA and its community.
