NAHI Volunteers 2009

The vision and mission of the National Aviation Heritage Invitational is to encourage the preservation of aviation history through the restoration of vintage aircraft to original flying condition. The National Aviation Heritage Invitational promotes aircraft restoration via friendly competition, bringing valuable aviation treasures together in one venue. This endeavor is a joint effort under the auspices of Rolls-Royce North America Inc., the National Aviation Hall of Fame, the Reno Air Racing Foundation and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

The National Aviation Heritage Invitational was established by Rolls-Royce North America in 1998. The objective of the National Aviation Heritage Invitational is to encourage the preservation of aviation history through the restoration of vintage aircraft to original flying condition.

The Rolls-Royce Trophy resides full time in the new Steven F. Udvar Hazy Center of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. The names of current and previous winners are engraved on plaques upon the trophy body.

We would like to thank Ms. Marsha Pike for setting this photo shoot up and giving us the opportunity to meet some great people.  Thanks  again.

Here are some photos from the 2009 reno NAHI event.
