THE NATIONAL LANDMARK OF SOARING PROGRAM
In the 1970s, the Smithsonian Institution established their "National Landmarks of
Flight" program. The National Soaring Museum established its corresponding National
Landmarks of Soaring program in 1980 to identify and memorialize sites, individuals, or
historic events related to the national history of motor less flight; and in the process
collect, reserve and interpret documents and materials related to each approved Landmark.
