Our Mission


Welcome to the OX5 Aviation Pioneers

The OX5 Aviation Pioneers club was organized in June, 1955 in Latrobe, Pa for the purposes of honoring aviation pioneers associated with the OX5 Engine and educating the public on matters of aeronautics.  FOUNDERS  We remain dedicated to the preservation of early aviation history and memorabilia with membership open to persons of like interests.

Our goal remains intact as we award generous scholarships, organize seminars, presentations and field-trips and  youth summer camp education.  Youth education is an important part of our mission.

On the National level, we sponsor an annual Reunion/Board Meeting where we pay tribute and present awards to notable members and persons in the aviation field.

The reunions attract much attention as members travel from all parts of the country to gather and renew old acquaintances and relive the golden days of yore.

You do not have to be a pilot or mechanic to join our organization.
