BISMARCK, North Dakota — The North Dakota Aeronautics Commission has announced the new inductee to the state's Aviation Hall of Fame.
The commission says pilot Martin Schow will be honored next month during an aviation symposium. Schow was one of the state's first pilots, soloing on April 1928.
Schow designed his airplane and built it in 1927 using parts from wrecked aircraft. He later used an airplane to transport patients in need of medical assistance and to search for missing people.
The commission says Schow established a flying school where numerous students including his wife trained. His daughter, Geneva Schow Oleson, last year became the first woman inducted into the hall of fame.
