Due to lack of community and industry support, the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame has postponed the enshrinement of the USAF Air Demonstration Team (Thunderbirds) until 2013 during the 60th anniversary of the Thunderbirds Alumni Association.
As a consequence of the lack on support and interest in recognizing the aerospace and aviation legends of Nevada, NVAHOF has cancelled its events scheduled during the Aviation Nations Open House air show. Those attending at the new venue and dates can be assured of the same high standard and highly rewarding event as experienced in the past at The Landings at the Henderson Executive Air Terminal in Henderson, Nevada.
NVAHOF expressively thanks the Boyd Group Sams Town Hotel, the Plaza Hotel, the CIA EAA store, Aviation Nations, and Nellis AFB for their support of the NVAHOF 2012 enshrinement events, and the Landings at the Henderson Executive Air Terminal for their once again hosting this annual event.
The venue of the 2012 NVAHOF reception, banquet, and enshrinement ceremony has been changed from the Plaza Hotel to The Landings At Henderson Executive Terminal. Reception starts at 1800 hours, banquet at 1900 hours, followed by the enshrinement ceremony. Menu includes: pot roast and chicken with potato, steamed vegetables, coffee, ice tea or soda with cheese cake as a dessert.
Enshrinement of Randall T. Henderson, Maurice F. Graham, and Jess Harris will occur on 7 November 2012 as originally planned, however, the venue has changed to The Landings at the Henderson, NV Executive Air Terminal from 6 - 9 p.m.
Enshrinement of Robert W. Bussard, William Park, Frank Murray, and David L. Ferguson will occur at the Henderson Executive Air Terminal on 17 November 2012. 6 - 9 p.m.

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.
