The Bob Hoover Trophy

The entire Aviation Community is banding together to fund the Bob Hoover Memorial Trophy to be placed in Washington, DC. Specifically, this trophy is to be a life size bronze statue of Bob Hoover, waving his straw hat the world as he has done for millions of people over the past decades. With the funds raised in this effort, Bob’s statue will not only be built, but will be cared for in perpetuity.

The Bob Hoover Memorial Trophy will enshrined in a prestigious place of great honor in Washington, D.C.  

     This trophy is to be a life size bronze statue of Bob Hoover, waving his straw hat to the world as he has done for millions of people over the past decades. With the funds raised in this effort, the statue will not only be built, but placed in the museum for perpetuity.

     For most of the past century, Bob Hoover has given his heart and soul to America. He represents the very best in us, not only as the greatest pilot in the world but as a true gentleman. As a friend and advocate of aviation and aerospace, Bob Hoover is the one pilot all pilots look up to. This trophy will allow millions of visitors to continue to look up to Bob for centuries to come.

     In addition to the trophy and its perpetual care, your contribution will help fund a new national recognition award. The “Hoover Trophy” will be presented each year to “a living aviator who exhibits the airmanship, leadership, and passion for aviation and life demonstrated by R. A. ‘Bob’ Hoover during his distinguished career as a pilot and aviation advocate while also serving as a source of inspiration and encouragement for current and prospective aviators.” Their names will join Bob’s on the Award.

     An effort of this magnitude requires a commitment from all of us. Every dollar raised will go to funding the creation of the life size trophy, its perpetual care and creation of the annual Annual Award.

     Every contributor will be invited to include their names in a time capsule placed inside the base of the trophy. The time capsule is to be opened 100 years from the anniversary of the trophy’s dedication. Larger sponsors will be invited to include additional commemorative document or memorial remembrance in keeping with their level of support.

     Bob Hoover has been giving unselfishly to the aviation community for his entire lifetime, time is of the essence for this project to be completed. We urge you to support this perpetual honor for the Pilot’s Pilot, for The Best Stick and Rudder Pilot Who Ever Lived, for a Great American and a friend to all of us, R.A. “Bob” Hoover.
