Click for info on the Daedalians' seal.The Order of Daedalians was organized on March 26, 1934, by a representative group of American World War I pilots to perpetuate the spirit of patriotism, the love of country, and the high ideals of sacrifice which place service to nation above personal safety or position. The Order is dedicated to: insuring that America will always be preeminent in air and space—the encouragement of flight safety—fostering an esprit de corps in the military air forces—promoting the adoption of military service as a career—and aiding deserving young individuals in specialized higher education through the establishment of scholarships.  For more, visit their web site: www.daedalians.org. (Willie Flight 82 is a tax exempt 501(c)(19) organization.)
