About Enshrinement

Since 1962 the National Aviation Hall of Fame has inducted over 250 of the nation’s premier air and space pioneers into the organization. Our Enshrinees are the who’s who in the world of aviation including Bessie Coleman, Charles Lindbergh, Kelly Johnson, William Boeing, Joe Engle, and Sally Ride.

At our annual Enshrinement, you can be among some of the heroes already recognized and celebrate with us the heroes yet to come. Join us for this exclusive and exciting evening widely known as the ‘Oscar Night of Aviation.”
