NAA Issues Call For Nominations For Katharine Wright Trophy

Recognizes 'Those Who Have Contributed To The Art, Sport And Science Of Aviation And Space Flight In The U.S.'

Part of NAA's mission is identifying and recognizing those who have contributed to the "art, sport and science of aviation and space flight in the United States." NAA presents more than a dozen awards throughout each year to honor achievements in aviation and space.

The nomination period for the Katharine Wright Trophy is now open through March 31.

The Katharine Wright Memorial Trophy was established in 1981 by the Gates Learjet Corporation and is "made annually to an individual who has contributed to the success of others, or made a personal contribution to the advancement of the art, sport and science of aviation and space flight over an extended period of time."

The Katharine Wright Trophy is presented at NAA's Annual Fall Awards Dinner.

The Katharine Wright Memorial Trophy was established in 1981 by the Gates Learjet Corporation and is made annually to an individual who has contributed to the success of others, or made a personal contribution to the advancement of the art, sport and science of aviation and space flight over an extended period of time. The first award was made to Moya Lear, wife of Bill Lear.

The award was named in honor of Orville and Wilbur Wright’s sister, Katharine. She used money from teaching to purchase supplies for her brothers’ experiments, nursed Orville back to health after he crashed in Fort Myer, Virginia, contributed ideas to their experiments and trials, and acted as a public figure to endorse the safety of flying and the Wrights’ aircraft. She not only provided financial support to her brothers’ endeavors, but also emotional and public support to her brothers as well.
