Historical Sketch

As early as 1948 there was an organization called the North Dakota Aviation Operators Association that held annual meetings, followed legislation and regulation of matters such as aerial spraying and safety, and in conjunction with the FAA and the Aeronautics Commission, presented awards to Aviation Mechanics and Flight Instructors. At some time between 1971 and 1973 the organization’s name changed to North Dakota Aviation Association.

 In 1983 a meeting was held under the auspices of the North Dakota Aviation Interest Council. Out of this meeting the North Dakota Aviation Council was founded by six aviation organizations interested in promoting aviation in the state and presenting their concerns before government and the general public. Those organizations are: North Dakota Aviation Association; North Dakota Professional Aviation Mechanics Association; Airport Association of North Dakota; North Dakota Agricultural Aviation Association; North Dakota Pilots Association; North Dakota Experimental Aviation Association; and Association of Aviation Museums. It was founded with the notion that solutions to problems facing aviation can be best served by consolidating and working together rather than struggling as independent special interest groups. The NDAC seeks to serve aviation professionals by providing a forum for the exchange of information, ideas, and experience among their peers-pilots, agricultural operators, airport managers, FBO’s, aviation mechanics, educators and aviation museums in Fargo and Minot.

Advancing the goals of the member organization is an important function of the annual Upper Midwest Aviation Symposium. The organization also operates the North Dakota Aviation Hall of Fame.

Over the years the Council has become an influential voice for the flying public and aviation services in North Dakota. By combining talents and resources, they are set to explore answers to the most pressing issues of today to ready ourselves for the exciting aviation world of tomorrow.

To communicate the issues, the happenings locally, statewide and on the national scene, the Council provides to the memberships of all organizations the “North Dakota Aviation Quarterly”. This publication has been in existence for twenty years, providing information to all of North Dakota aviation.
