Projects Include Building Model Of Curtiss "Warner" Flyer
The Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame
(WAHF) plans a series of events to celebrate Wisconsin’s
Centennial of Flight, including the construction of a quarter-scale
model Curtiss "Warner" Flyer similar to the one that first flew in
Wisconsin in 1909.
WAHF has teamed with EAA Chapter 60 of Beloit, WI for the
construction of the model. The EAA chapter was asked to participate
due to Arthur Pratt Warner making Wisconsin’s first flight in
Beloit on November 4, 1909. Chapter members will complete the model
in time for its unveiling at the Wisconsin Aviation Conference on
May 4-6 in Eau Claire.
Additional centennial events include statewide and Beloit-area
aviation history presentations, a traveling exhibit of the model,
and a WAHF membership rewards program.
More details will be announced soon. To become a Wisconsin
Centennial of Flight supporter, schedule a speaker, or learn more

The Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame has inducted more than 80
men and women since its inception in 1985. Its mission is to
collect and preserve the history of aviation in Wisconsin,
recognize those who made that history, inform others of it, and
promote aviation education to future generations.
