Walk of Honor

The Aerospace Walk of Honor program pays tribute to the outstanding accomplishments of distinguished test pilots. Sidewalk monuments along West Lancaster Boulevard continue to honor the contributions of these brave men and women.


As the first project in the United States to honor test pilots, the Lancaster's Aerospace Walk of Honor program acknowledges the City of  Lancaster's seventy-five year tradition as the nation's Host City and aerospace center. The program's purpose is to honor a distinguished group of internationally known experimental test pilots who flew at Edwards Air Force Base during their careers.

The Aerospace Walk of Honor was established by the Lancaster City Council in 1990. The project awards recognition to test pilots whose aviation careers are marked by significant achievements beyond one specific accomplishment. In a profession where extraordinary achievement is the norm, honorees selected for the Aerospace Walk of Honor were those who soared above the rest. The Aerospace Walk of Honor program was completed in 2009 when the 100th honoree was inducted.


California artist Robert Schaar has painted a series of portraits of the Center’s NACA/NASA pilots inducted into the Aerospace Walk of Honor.
