Located at the North Central West Virginia Airport, the West Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame honors pioneers and leaders in the aviation industry who have made significant contributions to the development, advancement or promotion of aviation and have close ties to the State of West Virginia. Plaques commemorating the inductees as well as memorabilia from various eras are on display in the main terminal. The public is encouraged to view the Hall of Fame during business hours to learn more about the state’s distinguished aviation heritage.
The West Virginia Aviation Wall of Valor honors living individuals and those who gave their lives in aviation actions where they exhibited or were specifically cited for valor as a result of their actions. Similar to the West Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame, inductee plaques are viewable in the passenger terminal building.
