Hall of Fame

Hall of HonorIndividually the honored inductees of the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame (WAHF) have accomplished much. Collectively they have contributed greatly to all of aviation. Every user of today's aviation industry are beneficiaries of the knowledge, perseverance, and sacrifices of those who have gone before us.

Join us in honoring the men and women who have made aviation what it is today. Browse the pages of each WAHF inductee to learn more about their lives and their achievements. We are sure that you will agree that they have made a difference in aviation.

The WAHF Hall of Honor celebrates the lives and contributions of each of our inductees. The Hall of Honor is located just outside the Goldwater Conference Room on the lower level of the EAA AirVenture Museum located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Current year inductees are recognized in the Kohler Plaza in the museum's foyer. We encourage everyone to visit the Hall of Honor to learn even more about these individuals.
