Mission Statement

The purpose of the Corporation, Minnesota Aviation Hall of Fame, Inc., is to establish and maintain an ongoing means of honoring native individuals who have contributed in significant manner to the development, advancement and promotion of aviation in Minnesota, or elsewhere. Or to honor individuals who were not native to Minnesota, but enhanced the aviation climate in Minnesota in their careers.
The goal is to foster, promote, and encourage a better sense of appreciation by the public of those persons’ contributions and the role of aviation in Minnesota and elsewhere, and to perpetuate the memory of those honored by means of public displays and announcements.
Archival materials such as photos, letters, scrapbooks, interviews, logbooks and awards given are collected in the course of researching the lives of outstanding Minnesota aviation personalities.


A further goal is to inspire the next generation of aviation professionals, our future inductees, by means of providing scholarships to dedicated young people.
