National Aviation Day 2018! Fly those flags and fly those airplanes!
NASA’s poster for National Aviation Day 2016. A young girl looks up at some of the experimental ideas for future aviation. NASA said: “It’s an exciting time for aviation, with potential NASA X-planes on the horizon and a lot of new technologies that are making airplanes much more Earth friendly. Use National Aviation Day to excite and inspire the young people you know about exploring aeronautics as a future career. Credits: NASA / Maria C. Werries”
August 19 is National Aviation Day. In federal law, the day is designated for flying the flag (36 USC 1 § 118).
August 19 is the anniversary of the birth of Orville Wright, usually credited with being on the team with his brother Wilbur who successfully built and flew the first heavier-than-air flying machine.
Celebrate? The White House issued no proclamation for 2018. but you may fly your flag anyway.
