National Business Aircraft Association received the Aviation Hall of Fame Milton Caniff ‘Spirit of Flight’ award in recognition of the group’s “significant contribution to America’s aviation heritage.” The award was presented at the annual induction ceremonies held at Dayton, Ohio. The award has been given annually since 1981. Ed Bolen, president and CEO of NBAA, received the award for the association and said “NBAA is humbled by the honor because it pays tribute to the tens of thousands of individuals whose passion and professionalism have made the business aviation community one of America’s great success stories.” The presentation was part of the Hall of Fame’s annual enshrinement weekend at Dayton, Ohio. The award was named for famed artist/cartoonist Milton Caniff, creator of the long-running comic strip Steve Canyon. A native of Dayton, Caniff over the years drew many portraits of leading aviation persons honored by the Hall of Fame.
