The Utah Aviation Hall of Fame was established to recognize individuals in the state of Utah who have distinguished themselves through heroic accomplishments as civil or military aviators or by fostering exceptionally noteworthy advances in the state's aviation programs. The overarching goal of this program is to cultivate public appreciation for the contributions of such worthy individuals to the cause of air power and to encourage the continued development of aviation throughout the state.

In 1996 the governor of Utah provided official recognition of the Utah Aviation Hall of Fame and proclaimed 32nd Flight (Pioneer), Order of Daedalians, the National Fraternity of Military Pilots, as the sponsor and custodial agency for the program.

The initial thirteen inductees for the Utah Aviation Hall of Fame were enshrined in 1996 when the Hall of Fame found a home within the Hill Aerospace Museum. To learn about each of the the inductees visit the museum or click on the names below.
