How Can We Help YOU Celebrate Kansas Aviation History?

 

 

ABOUT KAC


Starting in September, 2011 (Kansas Aviation's 100th Anniversary Month), the Kansas Aviation Centennial is a year-long, state-wide commemoration of the state's most spectacular major industry.

The Centennial Committee organizes, conducts, and supports activities and projects that spread the knowledge, appreciation and understanding of Kansas aviation and its history.

To commemorate this nearly-overlooked major milestone in Kansas progress, a group of Kansas historians and aviation experts from different parts of the state (chiefly in the Wichita area), joined together, on relatively short notice, to produce the Kansas Aviation Centennial.

But we can't do it alone.

Your participation and support is needed to bring alive the past -- and illuminate the future -- of the high-tech industry that makes Kansas famous around the globe.

Join the Centennial Boosters, participate in Centennial Events, and share the story of Kansas's leading role in the world's most dynamic industry.

Opportunities for volunteers abound, and additional Centennial Committee members are being recruited. The Centennial depends upon community support. Please contribute to the cause.
