Captain Ralph S. Barnaby of Philadelphia has been named "an elder statesman of aviation" by the National Aeronautic Association. An Early Bird, Capt. Barnaby is now principal engineer of the Franklin Institute's laboratories for research and developement.
The citation presented by the association in Indio, California, hailed his significant and enduring contributions over the years to the demonstrated qualities of progress of aeronautics and patriotism, integrity and moral courage.
Captain Barnaby believes every prospective pilot should first learn to operate a glider as valuable training. He points out that even the new X-15 plane becomes a glider once it has burned out its fuel and requires competent operation for a safe landing.
The new "elder statesman" joined the Navy in 1917 and retired in 1947. His awards include the Legion of Merit, the Air Medal and the Medal of Merit of Columbia University.
In 1930, Captain Barnaby made aviation history by sailing 3,000 feet to earth in a glider launched from the airship Los Angeles over the Lakehurst Naval Air Station. He was captain of the U. S. team in the first world soaring championship held in Sweden in 1950.
Only thirty-seven other persons have received "the elder statesman of aviation" honor. Among them are Early BirdsFrank LahmGlenn L. Martin, Leonin , Sikorsky etc . Others so honored includeGeneral JamesH. Doolittle , Captain Eddie Rickenbacker and Admiral Richard E. Byrd.
