The new hall will highlight the contributions made to aviation by Oregonians in the first century of flight.

Among those chosen for the first class are former Air Force Gen. Tony McPeak and the late military pilots Marion Carl and Rex Barber.

The honors are meant to recognize individuals whose contributions to aviation go beyond the state’s borders, and include civilians as well as those in business, engineering, education and the military, said spokeswoman Nicole Wahlberg.
