Hall of Fame

The North Dakota Aviation Hall of Fame was established to honor those who have made major achievements in aviation, in North Dakota. ND Aviation Hall of Fame inductees must have the following attributes:

  • Major achievements in aviation in North Dakota
  • Significant contributions to the development of others in aviation in North Dakota.
  • Special service to the state of North Dakota in aviation activities.
  • Activities that bring credit to North Dakota aviation, either nationally or internationally.
  • Significant contributions to the local community or the state of North Dakota that are not related to aviation (i.e.; service clubs, church related, political activities, etc).

The Aviation Hall of Fame committee is led by the Director of the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission and meets annually to select new inductee’s. To nominate an individual, the nomination form is due to the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission office by September 30th of each year.

The North Dakota Aviation Hall of Fame has a physical location that honors all inductees. This physical location is located in the terminal building at the Bismarck Municipal Airport. Physical kiosks also exist at the Fargo Air Museum, Minot Air Museum, and the Bismarck Heritage Center that also contain information regarding each inductee.

To view additional information about all of the inductees visit the North Dakota Aviation Association (NDAA) website.
