 Ongoing Activities

The LAA works closely with the NASA Langley Research Center. Our LaRC liaison is the talented Melanie Robinson: 757-864-2660. [email protected].

The Langley Research Center NACA and NASA Hall of Honor (HoH) is an important partnership between the LAA and LaRC to honor the pioneers and contributors to LaRC over the years. The permanent display of the Honorees at LaRC for Classes 2015 and 2017 has been completed and can be viewed in the NACA Room of the NASA Langley Cafeteria,where the LAA meets. This is an exciting accomplishment of the LAA and NASA Langley Research Center partnership & praise to Langley’s outstanding Graphics team. You’ll find more info on our 2015 & 2017 classes at the NASA LaRC Hall of Honor website

The Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame seeks Nominees here.

The LAA  ad hoc committee entitled Langley Retiree Knowledge Capture (LRKC) has been active since early 2019.  It is well known that former employees have a vast reservoir of past experience and expertise that may need to be accessible to Langley, other NASA Centers, and even outside organizations. This sub-committee has been exploring this matter and has initiated several related activities.  Members of the sub-committee are Marilyn Ogburn, Dan Palumbo, and Wayne Richie and they have been reporting their findings and progress to the Board. All LAA members are encouraged to contact any member of this sub-committee with any ideas or suggestions. The primary point of contact is Marilyn Ogburn ([email protected]).

Colloquium+Sigma Lectures – NASA Langley’s monthly lectures are available to LAA members on Webex: 2PM-LaRC Reid Center Colloquium, 7:30pm-VASC Sigma.
