2020 GALA & INDUCTIONS CANCELLED
After much deliberation and careful evaluation of the current pandemic environment, the TAHF Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Tennessee Aviation Hall of Fame Gala and Inductions previously scheduled for October 24, 2020. We are deeply saddened about doing this, but the associated, unpredictable, risks remain significant and this event has enjoyed nearly 20 years of great success. This institution relies heavily on this annual event as a critical fundraiser.
The new plan is to move forward toward our preferred date, the 1st Saturday in November 2021 and formerly enshrine our 2020 Class of Inductees then. In the meantime there is a need to do some interim fundraising.
The TAHF has so many loyal supporters and hopefully you will understand and support this difficult decision. Please put the 2021 event on your calendar now and more details will come as they develop.
The TAHF Board of Directors

TN AVIATION HALL OF FAME MEMBER CLAIMS WORLD TITLE

January 21, 2020
Sarah Arnold, co-owner/operator of Chilhowee Gliderport in Benton, TN has just returned from Lake Keepit in New South Wales, Australia and brought with her the title of Women’s World Gliding Champion in the Standard Class for Team USA.

Sarah first began flying when she was 13 and was instantly hooked. From there her childhood passion became her livelihood as she took over the popular gliding site in 2004. In 2006 Sarah took part in her first major competition and has steadily been working to improve as a pilot.

Finally in Australia, Sarah achieved her dream. Now back home in Tennessee with her husband Jason, who crewed for her during the contest, it’s taking a while for her success to settle in.

“Watching other pilots stand on the podium and hear their national anthems really inspired me to bring this trophy back for the United States. This is the realization of a dream I have worked very hard toward for many years and I couldn’t be more thrilled.”

• This is only the sixth time in history the US has won gold in a World Gliding Championships and first time in the Women’s World Gliding Championships
• The last time an American won a World Gliding gold was 35 years ago (Doug Jacobs)
• Sarah earned two previous podiums in the Women’s World Gliding Championships: 2013 (Bronze, France) and 2017 (Silver, Czech Republic)
• Sarah was inducted into the Tennessee Aviation Hall of Fame in 2017
