Governor’s Aviation Honor Award

The Governor’s Aviation Honor Award was created to preserve the memory of outstanding aviation contributions by citizens of the State of Kansas. The intent of this award is to recognize and record for future generations the many individual efforts that have been made in the pioneering, growth and development of aviation and space exploration in Kansas.

Kansas Aviation Hall of Fame 

The Kansas Aviation Hall of Fame was created to preserve the memory of extraordinary citizens of Kansas who have made contributions to aviation of statewide or national significance. Additionally, any Kansan inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame will automatically be inducted into the Kansas Aviation Hall of Fame.
