Happy #NationalAviationDay

- A Monitor Report 20 Aug, 2018  |    -      +
Dhaka: United States President Franklin Delano Roosevelt designated the anniversary of Orville Wright’s birthday to be National Aviation Day on August 19.

The holiday was established in 1939 under presidential proclamation which designated the anniversary of Orville Wright's birthday to be National Aviation Day (Wright, born in 1871, was still alive when the proclamation was first issued, and would live another nine years).

The proclamation allows the sitting US President to proclaim August 19 as National Aviation Day each year, if desired. The federal buildings may installation to fly the US flag on that day, and may encourage citizens to observe the day with activities that promote interest in aviation.
