Mission Statement

The Tennessee Aviation Hall of Fame was established to recognize, honor and enshrine individuals whose leadership in or for aviation, whether by exceptional service or extraordinary achievement, has made an enduring contribution to aviation for Tennessee, our nation or the world.

Established in 2001 as Tennessee’s Official Aviation Hall of Fame by the 102nd General Assembly, those inducted are recipients of Tennessee’s highest honor in aviation or aerospace. This institution will record their achievements and perpetuate the memory of those enshrined for all time.
