Recognizing Outstanding Achievement in Aviation
Capping the night’s events will be the presentation of the annual Planes of Fame Achievement in Aviation Award. Each year, we present this award to individuals who exemplify the best that aviation has to offer. For 2017, we’re focusing on two individuals who dedicated their lives to inspiring others to the magic and wonder of flight.

As the longtime Chair of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program, Sean has worked tirelessly to introduce and inspire millions of young people to aviation. READ MORE
