EAA Honors Five Aviators With Hall Of Fame Induction On Nov. 15

Each Has Achieved 'Notable Success' In A Particular Realm Of Flight

The EAA will recognize the contributions made to the world of flight by five aviators on Thursday, Nov. 15, as it inducts them into the EAA Hall of Fame during a banquet at the EAA Aviation Center in Oshkosh, WI.

The five aviators represent the spectrum of aviation within the EAA community and have achieved notable successes within their particular realm of flight:

  • EAA Ultralight Hall of Fame: Taras Kiceniuk Jr. of Santa Paula, CA.
  • International Aerobatic Club Hall of Fame: Giles Henderson of Charleston, IL.
  • Vintage Aircraft Association Hall of Fame: Clyde Smith Jr. of Lock Haven, PA.
  • Warbirds of America Hall of Fame: Preston (Pete) Parish of Kalamazoo, MI.
  • EAA Homebuilders Hall of Fame: Wes Schmid of Wauwatosa, WI.

“Each of these five individuals has made a unique contribution to the world of flight that has benefited all of us,” said Chad Jensen, EAA’s communities manager. “These inductees serve as an example for everyone involved in flying and represent the best that recreational aviation has to offer. We recognize their commitment and passion for flying and are honored to welcome them into the EAA Halls of Fame.”

In addition, Tom Shepeck of Oshkosh will receive the Henry Kimberly Spirit of Leadership Award for his efforts on behalf of EAA and the local community. Shepeck has long been involved as a volunteer in AirVenture activities, including as a liaison between the region’s government officials and the event.
A limited number of tickets remain for the dinner and program, which begins with a 6 p.m. reception.
