Reed I. West Aviation History Project

So as not to be lost forever, the Reed I. West Aviation History Project is designed to interview and record the stories of Virginia’s aviation pioneers as well as other individuals, events and locations instrumental in the Commonwealth’s aeronautical advancement.  This project was made possible by a generous bequest from Mr. Reed I. West.  To date the VAHS has completed more than 20 videos including members of the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame and videos on Langley, the DuPont Glider, and Byrd’s flight.  This is an on-going project that will eventually encompass all of the Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame.
