GEORGIA AVIATION HALL OF FAME (GAHOF)
The Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame is the only exclusively aviation-related organization chartered by the General Assembly of the State of Georgia. In recognition of its importance to the State, the Georgia Legislature passed House Bill 110 creating the organization, which was formally signed into law by Govenor Joe Frank Harris on 19 April 1989. The Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame is established in the Museum of Aviation at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, which is one of the fastest growing military aviation museums in the Southeastern United States.
To date, 93 individuals have been inducted into the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame. For more information on the Hall of Fame as well as biographies of each inductee, please visit the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame webpage at www.gaaviationhalloffame.com.

The candidate's contributions to aviation may have been in Georgia, nationally, worldwide or while a resident of Georgia. The candidate may be living or dead and his/her current place of residence need not be in Georgia.
