I have been piloting and flying in airplanes for over 50 years, and just learned this past week that Aug. 19 is designated as National Aviation Day. I was further amazed to discover it’s not like other recently designated national days but was declared on Orville Wright’s birthday in 1939 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
