The Alfred L. and Constance C. Wolf Aviation Fund was created to help individuals work together in support of general aviation.   

Read on and enjoy finding many ideas and resources to help you in your general aviation endeavors! Our web site contains many documents, lists of resources, instructions for grants, and useful links to other sites.  All this information is intended to help aviators, aviation groups, and others improve the state of the art in general aviation and also to tell their stories so the public can gain a wider understanding of this important activity.

Our Mission and History 

Mission Statement:   “The Foundation shall promote and support the advancement of personal air transportation by seeking and funding the most promising individuals and worthy projects which advance the field of general aviation; by increasing the public’s knowledge of aviationA-SENC.gif (38365 bytes) through publications, seminars, and other information media; by informing the aviation and scientific community of the existence and purpose of the Fund; and by soliciting and receiving feedback concerning Foundation-supported projects.”

History:  The Wolf Aviation Fund was established in the wills of Alfred L. and Constance C. Wolf.  Its activities are supervised by a board of trustees, aided by a council of advisors and a team of consultants.  The Mission Statement states overall policies, and its origin can be found in the lives of the Founders as shown in the biographical sketch available by clicking on the “Founders” button above.
