The Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame has reached out to the public, businesses, and aerospace – aviation communities to support its November 7, 2012 Hall of Fame reception, dinner and ceremony to kick off the 2012 Aviation Nation annual Nellis Open House. The NVAHOF reception, dinner and ceremony is followed by the largest free public event in Nevada on November 10-11 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. Supporters can register their support at http://nvahof.org/?rsvpmaker=rsvp-2012-nvahof-induction-dinner-ceremony or by visiting the NVAHOF website: http://nvahof.org/
NVAHOF is barred by law from using the event as a fundraiser due to the 2012 Hall of Fame event being focused on active duty DOD military personnel attendance and participation. NVAHOF urges the public, the business community and Nevada’s aerospace, military, and general aviation support organizations around the world to support the event through donations for event costs and by donating seating for our nation’s service men and women who might otherwise be unable to attend an event that recognizes them for their service. Show your support through the link above and/or the NVAHOF website at: http://nvahof.org/.
NVAHOF has dedicated its mission to preserving the history of aerospace in the state of Nevada and establishes and maintains an ongoing means of honoring individuals from Nevada who have contributed in a significant manner to the development, advancement and promotion of aerospace.
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, and access to our historical archives holdings, recommendation of related books on related subjects and our annual Hall of Fame induction ceremonies.
NVAHOF also honors individuals who were not native to Nevada but were associated with the Battle Born state, whose careers enhanced the aerospace climate worldwide or in space. The mission of NVAHOF is unique as it especially recognizes and honors the men and women, federal, military, and civilian, who worked in secrecy at various locations in Nevada.
The primary educational objectives of the NVAHOF focus on honoring the past by supporting the future of aviation. First, the programming consists of four annual scholarships awarded to outstanding students of aviation and aerospace engineering on the high school and university levels. Second, the NVAHOF also provides a state-wide Speakers Bureau for outreach within the community. The third educational objective is the creation of an accessible archive of Nevada aviation history. The uniqueness and diversity of Nevada’s aviation projects make it the most important state in the nation in regards to cutting-edge aerospace technology and development.
