Airlift Tanker Association Celebrates 50 th Anniversary

The Airlift Tanker Association- a corporate partner of the Gail S. Halvorsen Aviation Education Foundation- is celebrating their 50 th year of service to aviation and the Air Mobility community. Organized in 1968, the A/TA is an educational foundation that supports the men and women who use aerospace technology to deliver the goods- food, fuel, and people- wherever and whenever needed. The association’s strategic objectives are to Support Mobility Airmen, Preserve Air Mobility Heritage and Strengthen Mobility Bonds. A/TA promotes STEM education, encourages research and development of air mobility technologies, and sponsors scholarships for students. Our own Uncle Wiggly Wings was inducted into the A/TA Hall of Fame in 1999 for his efforts during the Berlin Airlift. The Gail S. Halvorsen Aviation Education Foundation will participate in the A/TA 50 th Anniversary Conference held on October 25-27, 2017 in Grapevine, Texas. Foundation representatives will be Gail Halvorsen, Denise Williams, Jim Stewart, and Phil Stewart. Stay tuned to see how the Foundation and A/TA works together to promote STEM education.
