Army Aviation Hall of Fame 1992 Induction

Chief Warrant Officer (W3) Jon A. Iseminger was twice awarded the title of World Champion Helicopter Pilot by the Commission Internationale de Giraviation (the International Helicopter Commission) acting for the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI), the world-wide sponsor of air and space records and contests. His successes led the United States Precision Helicopter Team to two consecutive World Helicopter Championships in 1986 and 1989.

In 1986 at Castle Ashby, England, CW3 Iseminger topped a field of 26 crews from West Germany, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, Poland, and the United States of America. In 1989, at Chantilly, France, competing in a field of 38 crews representing West Germany, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, France, South Africa, and the USA, he won with an astounding 796 points of a total possible 800. The highest scoring foreign competitor had 757 points. For his efforts, CW3 Iseminger was congratulated in person by President Ronald Reagan in 1986 and at the Oval Office in 1989 by President George Bush.

The scores achieved by Chief Warrant Officer Iseminger in international competitions are recorded permanently with the Federation Aeronautique Internationale, Paris, France, and will stand as a formidable challenge to future competitors. His outstanding accomplishments gained world-wide recognition while representing the United States Army's magnificent corps of Warrant Officer Aviators.

In 1990, he was presented the prestigious Harmon Trophy by Vice President Dan Quayle for his outstanding achievements as a pilot. With the award CW3 Iseminger joined the select ranks of the world's great aviation pioneers, pilots, and astronauts. In winning, he is the first member of the U.S. Army to win the Harmon Trophy since General James H. Doolittle won it in 1946.
