EAA President Tom Poberezny to Enter ICAS Hall of Fame
EAA President/Chairman Tom Poberezny along with the late Bobby Younkin and Charlie “The Flying Farmer” Kulp are
this year’s inductees into the International
Council of Air Shows (ICAS) Hall of Fame, set
to occur in December at the ICAS convention
in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In announcing the news, ICAS said Poberezny could have entered the hall as part of the
three-ship Eagles Aerobatic Flight Team or as an
event organizer for his longtime chairmanship
of EAA AirVenture.
“For 25 years, Charlie Hillard, Gene Soucy,
and I, as the Eagles Aerobatic Team, entertained
millions of people worldwide,” Poberezny said.
“I’m proud that my achievements in the air
show industry are recognized by my peers. I accept this honor with great appreciation.”
Younkin, a 2004 Bill Barber Award recipient,
was on the air show circuit for 30 years, dazzling crowds in aircraft as diverse as a Decathlon, T- 6
Texan, and his own custom biplane. Kulp spent 35 years
in the air show business, performing in more than 800
shows before retiring at the age of 82. Aside from his
farmer routine he is a founding member of the Bealeton
Flying Circus in Bealeton, Virginia.
