    Hall of Fame

    The Iowa Aviation Hall of Fame began in 1990. It preceded the opening of the Iowa Aviation Museum, home of the Hall of Fame.

    Nominations to the Hall of Fame are accepted until February 1st of each year. A selection committee, appointed by the Museum's Board of Directors, evaluates the nominations on a point system. A permanent tribute for each Hall of Fame inductee is featured at the Museum. The Museum is the only place in Iowa which focuses on the state's aviation heritage.

    If you have a nomination for the Hall of Fame, please fill out this application and send it to the Iowa Aviation Musuem.
