Aviation Connects South Dakotans to the World
from Black Hills Pioneer
National Aviation Day is observed annually on Aug. 19 to celebrate the history and promote the development of aviation. It coincides with the birthday of Orville Wright who, along with his brother Wilbur, pioneered powered flight more than 100 years ago. I took an early interest in aviation, receiving my pilot’s license at the age of 17. Today, aviation allows us to travel more frequently and with relative ease to all corners of the world.
