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 Order of Daedalians Foundation's scholarship program
also promotes study in aerospace disciplines. For more, visit
