The 15th Annual Rhode Island Aviation Hall of Fame Induction Dinner and Awards Ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2017 @ 5:30 PM at Scottish Rite Masonic Temple in Cranston, RI.
During these centennial years of the US involvement in World War I, we will honor those who made significant contributions to aviation during that conflict. We will also continue our recognition of those individuals who served with (or supported) the RI Air National Guard, or aviation elements of the RI Army National Guard.
