Nova Hall, the only grandchild of Donald A. Hall, Sr., has lived in Arizona for over 17 years. Following in his grandfather and father’s footsteps as a student pilot, photographer, and writer, he is presently set to attend ASU for his bachelor degree. Inspired by the family’s contributions to aeronautics and aerospace, he co-founded Orbital Air, Inc. (with David J. Pashman) to fulfill their shared goal of developing new aircraft while promoting the golden years of aviation. A competent toastmaster, EAA member, and an AOPA member, Nova continues to visit his hometowns of San Diego and Sedona.
In 2002 he spoke at Hofstra University, AirVenture Oshkosh, the 25th anniversary Lindbergh Foundation Awards, participated on the National Lindbergh 75th Anniversary Committee, co-founded the Donald A. Hall Aviation Foundation, and contributed to two published books about Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis in 2002.
Additionally, Nova Hall has appeared on local news channels in San Diego and on The Learning Channel in the hit series “The Hunt For Amazing Treasures” in 2001. He is a public speaker on aviation history and strongly promotes the same environmental views as his grandfather and father. His concerns for the environment include, among other things, the global health of the oceans and the impact humans are having on the planet’s broader health/biodiversity.
