About Us

Hall of HonorOrganized in 1985, the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame, Inc. (WAHF) is the result of an idea by Carl Guell. Formerly employed by the Wisconsin Aeronautics Commission (now the Department of Transportation, Bureau of Aeronautics), Guell began collecting the state's aviation history. Encouraged by the wealth of information he discovered through interviews and research, Guell incorporated the WAHF. The organization made its first induction of three Wisconsin aviation notables less than a year later.

The volunteer organization continues to grow and depends on member supporters to achieve its mission and goals. In its short history, WAHF has recognized over 70 individuals, published an award-winning aviation history book (3800 copies were given to state libraries) and provides significant scholarship opportunities to the state's top aviation students.

The Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame is listed as a 501(c)(3) organization for donation and tax purposes.
