  yeager_ce2Maj. Gen. Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager (USAF-Ret.), first pilot to break the sound barrier, has served with enthusiasm as Honorary Chairman since the founding of Flight Path Museum & Learning Center two decades ago.  General Yeager achieved lasting fame on October 14, 1947 when he flew the Bell X-1 faster than the speed of sound above Muroc Dry Lake Air Field (now Edwards AFB) in Southern California.That 1947 fete was but one in a long series of General Yeager’s aviation milestones.  A World War II combat pilot who learned to fly as an enlistee, he shot down 13 enemy aircraft, was himself shot down over occupied France; was a USAF Instructor Pilot, graduated from USAF Test Pilot school; and parachuted to safety (first ever in a full pressure suit needed for high altitude flight) from an out-of-control NF-104 rocket-augmented trainer. General Yeager was vice commander of the 7th Air Force at Ramstein, Germany; U.S. defense representative to Pakistan and Director of the Air Force Inspection and Safety Center, Norton AFB, California.In 1995 General Yeager officiated at ceremonies launching Flight Path’s salute to aviation pioneers with sidewalk plaques on Sepulveda Boulevard in Westchester, north of Los Angeles International Airport. The general is among those honored on the aviation walk of fame. He also is a recipient of the coveted Howard Hughes Memorial Award, presented each year by the Aero Club of Southern California.
