Foundation - Historical Committee

Vision

  • To be the world’s leading source of history relating to test pilots and their profession.
  • To preserve the historical significance of the accomplishments of test pilots, the SETP, and the aerospace industry by displaying memorabilia, written and oral records, reports, photographs, video, and other artifacts.
  • To archive and display such history in a manner that supports and enhances the efforts of flight test education and flight test safety for current and future generations of flight test personnel and the general public.

Goals

  • Document and record oral/video histories of test pilots, astronauts, aircraft designers, etc., for possible development into a documentary series for public viewing. The material will become part of a permanent public-access library.

  • Acquire museum-quality collectibles, which will be handled in accordance with the Foundation Bylaws.
