Order of Daedalians and the Daedalian Foundation
The Order of Daedalians honors, as its Founder Members, all WW I aviators who were commissioned as officers and rated as military pilots no later than the Armistice on 11 November 1918. It perpetuates their names as the first to fly our country's airplanes in time of war. The Order's membership of commissioned, warrant and flight officer military pilots and WASPs, with its worldwide network of Daedalian Flights and its comprehensive awards program, supports the military services and other aerospace activities. The Awards and Scholarship Programs of the Order and Foundation encourage patriotism, integrity, and good character in our nation's youth; military careers as commissioned pilots; safety of flight, and excellence in the performance of military duties. The Daedalian Foundation's scholarship program also promotes study in aerospace disciplines.



The Promise of a Daedalian

In the presence of Almighty God and these witnesses, I promise I will forever abide by the Tenets of the Order of Daedalians:

The Tenets of the Order of Daedalians
First: To Place Nation Above Self (Patriotism)
Second: To Be Worthy of the Trust and Confidence of a
Fellow Daedalian (Personal Integrity and Character)

The Objectives of the Order of Daedalians
1) Promote Air & Space Power in support of National Defense.
2) Educate Americans to the advantages of Air & Space Power.
3) Promote the rewards of a career in military aviation to young Americans.

I make this promise with no equivocation or mental reservation and ask Almighty God to assist me in unwavering adherence to the spirit and provisions of this Promise. So help me God and keep me steadfast.

Air Camp

Welcome to Air Camp!

The birthplace of flight, the beginnings of a new adventure for you--it's Air Camp.  If you're a middle school student, join us in Dayton, Ohio, for a week-long summer camp adventure in aviation and aeronautics. At Air Camp you'll experience rich and exciting aviation and educational opportunities like flying an airplane, a behind-the-scenes look at a national research laboratory, cockpit time in the giant C-17 Globemaster III.  Home base for the week is Wright State University.

What we do at Air Camp is inspire students to new heights of scholarship, leadership and citizenship while they experience the thrill of flight and study the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) of aviation and aeronautics. It’s a week packed with fun, adventure, learning, and challenge.
