Ernest C. Hall holds the very highest and unprecedented distinction of being continuously and actively engaged in all facets of aviation longer than any other individual, not only in the United States, but also in the world.
In the late 1890s, many searched for answers to overcome their design deficiencies, and the sluggishness or lack of expected performance. To the people of Warren, Ohio, Hall was Mr. Aviation because they were able to observe this pioneer of aviation in action. “My desire to fly must have been born in me,” Hall said.
Built by Ernie Hall in 1911 from factory drawings and the first plane to cross the English Channel.
