Click for info on the Daedalians' seal.The Order of Daedalians honors, as its Founder Members, all WW I aviators who were commissioned as officers and rated as military pilots no later than the Armistice on 11 November 1918. It perpetuates their names as the first to fly our country's airplanes in time of war. The Order's membership of commissioned, warrant and flight officer military pilots and WASPs, with its worldwide network of Daedalian Flights and its comprehensive awards program, supports the military services and other aerospace activities. The Awards and Scholarship Programs of the Order and Foundation encourage patriotism, integrity, and good character in our nation's youth; military careers as commissioned pilots; safety of flight, and excellence in the performance of military duties. The Daedalian Foundation's scholarship program also promotes study in aerospace disciplines.  For more, visit the Order of Daedalians web site (Note: Willie Flight 82 is a tax exempt 501(c)(19) organization.)

George who, 13 years later, on 26 March 1934, at Maxwell Field, Alabama, as one of 35 W.W. I Regular Army commissioned pilots, formally established the Order of Daedalians to "... perpetuate the spirit of patriotism, the love of country, the memories, sad and pleasant, of our service during that period (W.W.I) and to further cement the ties of comradeship which bound us together in that critical hour of our nation's need...."  Click here for more history.
