the Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame recently awarded David Linton

Mechanic degree from Blackhawk Technical College, Janesville,
Wisconsin. He is moving to aviation after a 30-year career in
computer technology. Linton is an instrument rated pilot and active
in his school and community.
Luke Van Lanen, from Madison, WI will receive the $500 Theissen

student in the Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic program. He
graduated from St. Cloud State University, St. Cloud, Minnesota, as
a multi-engine commercial, instrument rated pilot. After
graduating, he immediately enrolled in the mechanic program to

The Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame will award the scholarships
at its annual investiture ceremony and banquet on Saturday, October

recognize those who made that history, inform others of it, and
promote aviation education for future generations.
To date, over 70 men and women have been inducted into the Hall
of Fame since its founding in 1985.
