Congressman Turner released the following statement after receiving two letters of support from National Aviation Hall of Fame Trustees Katie McCallum and Donald I. VanDerKarr after announcing his plans to investigate the NAHF.

Last week, Congressman Turner sent a letter to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Aviation Hall of Fame stating he will investigate the Congressionally Chartered organization after receiving troubling information concerning their finances.

“I am pleased to receive the support from the Trustees which ensures we will not be impeded throughout our investigation.  Our efforts remain centered on establishing a sustainable future for the National Aviation Hall of Fame and making certain their Congressionally Chartered mission of supporting the history of aviation can continue.”

Congressman Turner is exercising his oversight authority to investigate these allegations against the Congressionally Chartered organization.
