On Saturday, March 31, NVAHOF will participate with the Clark County Aviation Association in its 5th annual open house at the North Las Vegas Airport. NVAHOF will set up a table along with various poster displays of interest to promote NVAHOF and support the CCAA. NVAHOF staff, members, and friends will make this a family affair to mix with the attending students and general public. NVAHOF staff and volunteers will offer NVAHOF membership to new members wishing to support NVAHOF in its endeavor to further student education and recognize the legends of aerospace and aviation in Nevada.
The CCAA reports that the DOA has agreed to allow display of a Hot Air Balloon (inflated), and the local RC club will be displaying various model aircraft. Scroggins Aviation will bring a 767 cockpit section provided CCAA and obtain a waiver from the FISDO, and pending FISDO approval the CCAA has requested a Military fly over from Nellis AFB.
CCAA will have little sticker wings for the kiddies, and while supplies last, toy helicopters and Styrofoam gliders. The CCAA also will have a drawing 1st place a framed print of two F6F flying over a beach, 2nd place a frame picture of a girl on the wing of a Corsair, and third place a frame picture - Heritage flight of a P51, F86, F4 and F22 in flight. Tickets are $2.00 a piece or 3 for $5.00.
This promises to be a good show for the benefit of the local students and the general public.
The Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame (NVAHOF) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on December 1, 2008 as a not for profit corporation organized exclusively for educational purposes under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 and received tax exempt status from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service on November 9, 2009. The NVAHOF currently operates as an educational resource and virtual museum through our website, www.nvahof.org . We offer the general public information related to the history of aviation and space through our virtual museum, speakers bureau, access to our historical archives holdings, recommendation of related books on related subjects and our annual Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
Our mission is to educate the public regarding the history of aviation in Nevada, the contribution of Nevada citizens to the development of worldwide aviation and to preserve the legacy of those men and women who pioneered and advanced our nation’s aerospace programs within the State of Nevada.
