Aviation Hall of Fame needs noms
The West Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame Committee is accepting nominations for its first induction.
Nominations must be received by June 1, with inductees being honored at the annual West Virginia Aviation Conference at the Greenbrier Resort in August.
"The West Virginia Airport Managers Association is excited to sponsor this exciting, new venture," Tom Cochran, association president and manager of the Raleigh County Memorial Airport, said in a press release.
Funding for the Hall of Fame was approved by the West Virginia Legislature last year.
Kim Lewis, assistant director of Yeager Airport, said plaques honoring inductees will be displayed at the North Central West Virginia Airport in Clarksburg, W.Va.
Nominees must have "made a significant contribution to aviation" and can be native West Virginians or those who have performed significant portions of aviation service in the Mountain State.
