Twelve individuals who contributed greatly to recreational aviation will be honored on November 11 as they are inducted into the EAA Sport Aviation Halls of Fame during a ceremony and dinner at the EAA Aviation Center in Oshkosh.

The 2021 Vintage Aircraft Association Inductee, Steve Nesse, has been actively involved in EAA since the late 1960s and with the Vintage Aircraft Association since its inception in 1971 as the EAA Antique-Classic Division. He was instrumental in the creation of the Contemporary Aircraft judging category at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in the early 1990s, which allowed thousands of aircraft to be restored, maintained and judged to the high standards that are the hallmarks of the esteemed Lindy awards. Nesse is also a longtime member of the VAA board of directors, chairs the Tall Pines Café area, and involved in restoration workshops and other areas that serve AirVenture attendees.

In addition, 2020 VAA Hall of Fame Inductee Steve Dyer will be recognized on November 11th, as the 2020 Hall of Fame Ceremony was cancelled due to Covid-19.

Congratulations to Mr. Nesse! A very kind and generous supporter of the Vintage Volunteer Kitchen workers!

Congratulations to two very deserving gentlemen. Bill was inducted in 2008 and without a doubt a highlight of his aviation career. There is no greater complement for your achievements than to be honored by your peers. To Jim Dyer be assured that your Dad will be there in spirit.

Our Vintage Airplane Ad of the Week from 1945 shares information on The ship with the built-in tailwind- Taylorcraft!

I flew one of these with the Trail flying club in the late 70's

Best buy in the sky.

They were big back in the day. We had so many airplane companies back then.

I'm always amused at the old airplane ads that make the planes look larger and roomier by making the people smaller!

How tall are those people?

Yes

A T-craft with 65hp and floats was not that easy.

Our Plane of the Week comes to us from Rhys Parry, who tells us, "Here is Sportair’s 1956 piper pa20/22 pacer Caribbean. Picked it up recently and I’ve just been checked out to fly it!
Richard Sims, who owns and runs the club, has just retired as a BA 747 skipper and just loves flying. Really lovely man, with some interesting aircraft!"

Congratulations!
