Program 2

Air Show Hall of Fame

The International Council of Air Shows Foundation's AIR SHOW HALL of FAME was created in 1995 to honor those who have made a significant contribution to the air show industry. Recognizing the industry's top performers is one of the clearest goals and purposes of the Foundation; there are so many unrecognized heroes and legends from the business.  But it's not just about honoring a couple of people every year - it's also about educating the people in our industry about their own past, and educating the larger air show community of fans, sponsors, potential fans and potential sponsors about the very long and illustrious history of air shows.
