A tireless promoter of aviation and a dedicated builder, Jim Wright was a true visionary. He was known as a community supporter here in Cottage Grove and friend to many.
It has been said the difference between a “pilot” and an “aviator” is that a pilot is a technician, while an aviator is an artist in love with flight.
Jim Wright was a skilled aviator who had a passion for preserving aviation history and the exhilaration of high-speed flight.
It was an honor for the OAHS Board of Directors to add James L. Wright to the Oregon Aviation Hall of Fame at last year’s OAHS Annual Stearman Fly-In.
