The National Aviation Hall of Fame’s 2017 Enshrinement Ceremony Draws the Best of American Aerospace

“Oscar Night of Aviation” set for Oct. 28 at Fort Worth Alliance Airport

Dayton, OH – The Board of Trustees of the National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) is thrilled to announce that its 55th Annual Enshrinement Dinner and Ceremony presented by Cirrus Aircraft, to be held Oct. 28, 2017, is on target to be the most sponsored event in its history. With wide appeal, from the industry’s most influential names to aviation’s brightest stars, the event is drawing a “who’s who” of aviation to the Fort Worth Alliance Airport to celebrate the “Oscar Night of Aviation.”

The NAHF is indebted to industry giants who have committed to support the annual event. NAHF President Michael Quiello stated, “All indications are that this one-time move to Texas has been very, very well received by the marketplace and helps ensure the growth of the NAHF. It’s very gratifying to see the results of the last few years of work developing the NAHF brand. Combined with an exemplary group of Inductees, the enthusiasm is building. We can’t wait for Enshrinement to happen.”

The 55th Annual NAHF Enshrinement Dinner and Ceremony will take place in conjunction with the Bell Helicopter Fort Worth Alliance Air Show. The Bell Helicopter Fort Worth Alliance Air Show is one of the largest, longest-running and most successful civilian air shows in the nation. An all-encompassing community event that attracts more than 120,000 attendees annually, the air show showcases the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron and the U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team Oct. 28-29. General admission is free and parking discounts are available now at

The Inductees in the NAHF Class of 2017 are Major General Charles F. Bolden, Jr., USMC (Ret), four-time Shuttle astronaut and former NASA Administrator; the late Captain Scott Carpenter, USN, one of the original ‘Mercury 7’ astronauts and the second American to orbit the Earth; Robert J. Gilliland, pioneering super-sonic SR-71 program test pilot; and the late Sir Frank Whittle, the inventor of the revolutionary turbojet engine.

Presenting General Bolden will be 2013 Enshrinee Captain Robert L. “Hoot” Gibson, USN (Ret). Captain Gibson is a Navy fighter pilot, “Top Gun” instructor and test pilot, champion air racer and a five-time Shuttle mission astronaut, including STS-61C on which he and Bolden served together in 1986.
Presenting the late Captain Carpenter will be 2016 Enshrinee Captain Robert Crippen, USN (Ret). Captain Crippen is a Navy fighter and test pilot, and, as astronaut, piloted STS-1, the first orbital space flight of the Shuttle, the first of his four missions to space.
Presenting Mr. Gilliland will be 1997 Enshrinee, Colonel Joe Kittinger, Jr., USAF (Ret). Colonel Kittinger is a fighter and test pilot, long-time record holder for the longest freefall parachute jump (102,800 feet), Vietnam POW, record-setting trans-Atlantic balloonist and barnstormer.
Presenting Sir Frank Whittle will be 2011 Enshrinee Dr. S. Harry Robertson. Dr. Robertson is a former Air Force pilot and engineer renowned for pioneering innovations in aviation safety and crashworthy fuel systems and serving aerospace education institutions such as Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
During the black-tie formal Enshrinement Dinner and Ceremony, each presenter will be introduced by emcee David Hartman, former host of ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America.”

The 55th Annual NAHF Enshrinement Dinner and Ceremony is open to the public by advance registration only. To make reservations or for more information, visit

Alamogordo White Sands Regional Airport.

New Mexico Aviation Aerospace Association (NMAAA)

The Alamogordo White Sands Regional Airport in corporation with the New Mexico Aviation Aerospace Association (NMAAA) is extremely proud to announce the fifth annual New Mexico Aviation Aerospace STEM Expo.  The purpose of this event is to expose Middle and High school students to all aspects of aviation.  This spectacular event will be held at the Alamogordo airport on October 5th, 2017 from 0900 to 1500 (that is 9:00AM to 3:00 PM for those non-aviation 24 hour clock folks).  The past four years this expo has been held on Kirtland and Holloman Air Force Bases (AFB).  Due to security issues, these locations limited the number of students and civilian aircraft able to participate.  In 2017, it will be open to more aircraft and students because the location is at a public civilian airport!

This event drew over 2400 students in 2016 to Holloman AFB accompanied by 500+ adults.  They had the opportunity to view 82 exhibits and see over 28 different aircraft including sail planes.  Yes, Jane Lucero (New Mexico State Aviation Division) received a flight in a sail plane, kissing up always brings good will. The students were enthralled by Congressman Steve Pearce relaying his story about his flight around the world.  This Congressman is 100% involved and is always willing to help motivate the students towards a career in the aviation industry.

What to expect in the 2017 Expo?  There are over 144 Mid and High schools invited with an expected attendance of between 2,500 and 3,000 students. We know some of the adults, local service members and even aviators may find a new career path to pursue.  If you want to check out all the excitement come and attend!  Aircraft exhibitors can attend at no fee.  We do need support.  We operate on volunteers and donations.  This helps us pay for logistics and transportation expenses.  You can help us by sponsoring a single bus or covering a group of kids for lunch.   The NMAAA strives to pay for the fuel for the busses to bring the students to the event, and that alone runs into tens of thousands of dollars.  Any financial help is greatly appreciated.  As in past years, this has been by far the largest exposition of its kind in the country!

Exhibiters are adding up fast to exceed last year’s numbers and we anticipate to have over 40 aircraft.  A catered lunch will be provided at a nominal cost (remember the sponsorship?) and the Alamogordo squadron of the Civil Air Patrol Cadets will be providing lots of the service and labor.  One of the many stars of the show will be the Neptune Aviation P2V fire-fighting slurry bomber.  Weather and maintenance cooperating, the P2V will make a fly by including a water drop.  You will be thrilled by the sound of the twin 18 cylinder round engines as it roars by in a low level pass.  These are the only flying P2V’s left and this may be your only chance to see one of these magnificent planes in flight.

Anyone interested in being an exhibitor, sponsoring lunches, needing more information or anything else related to our expo or to receive a pilot’s sign up form, may contact Jim Talbert at the Alamogordo Airport, 575-551-6245, or Mr. Bill Shuert at NMAAA at 505-414-5548 .  For additional information and a history of our event can visit the NMAAA web site at 

Did I mention, that this is the largest Student orientated STEM Aviation Exposition in the country?  Become a part of the future of aviation by investing in and sponsoring or attending.
