The Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame commemorates the First State’s aviation greats. The Hall of Fame celebrates distinction in building Delaware aviation; it honors outstanding service in military and civilian aviation.
Since its inception in 2000, the Hall of Fame has inducted 121 men and women (57 posthumously). The class of 2018 was inducted in November at the Annual Honors Banquet, held at U of D's Clayton Hall. They were selected by the Board of Trustees on the basis of public nominations.
In addition to the inductees, the DAHF sponsors an annual Youth Achievement Award, given to the young adult who has distinguished himself or herself in aviation career development.
There are several ways to participate:
- Attend the annual banquet at which our aviation greats are inducted and
Youth awards conferred.
- Come to DAHF aviation education programs.
- Affiliate with DAHF as a General Member.
- Support the work of the Hall of Fame with a tax-exempt contribution.
- As a general member, you can play an important part in preserving our aviation heritage for generations to come.
Our menu will guide you through photos and bio sketches of all honorees, scenes from annual dinner galas, and news on upcoming activities. We invite you to join our free Email list so that we can send you periodic notifications of site updates and future DAHF events.
HALL OF FAME INDUCTION HONORS BANQUET CANCELLED DUE TO COVID 19
It is with disappointment (as well as concern for the safety of our Inductees and attendees) that the Board of Trustees of the Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame has decided to cancel the Induction Honors Banquet for this year. We are currently working (remotely) on what to do about the 2020 nominations. We will update you on our decisions soon.
Please stay safe and we hope to see you next year.
