The Museum of Flying at Santa Monica Airport will host the fourth California Aviation Hall of Fame induction ceremony and dinner on Saturday evening, May 5, 2018.

This year’s Hall of Fame induction will honor four amazing individuals in aviation: inventor, educator and commercial airline pilot Angela Masson; test-pilot and astronaut Mike Melvill; high time commercial pilot and author Barry Schiff; and Dick Rutan, highly decorated air force pilot and record setter.

The Museum of Flying established the California Aviation Hall of Fame six years ago with a mission to commemorate and educate the public about the many individuals who have contributed to the birth and growth of aviation and aerospace in California. Ticket purchases for the event raise funds to support the Museum of Flying, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.

This year’s ceremony at The Museum of Flying will begin with a reception at 6:00pm and dinner at 7:00pm. A live auction will take place at 8:15pm, followed by the induction. To purchase tickets, click here for the Museum of Flying website.
