Dear Mr. President:

   In accordance with Section 10 of the U.S. Centennial of Flight Commemoration Act (P.L. 105-389, as amended by P.L. 106-68), I am pleased to present to you the FY 2000 Annual Report of the U.S. Centennial of Flight Commission.

   FY 2000 marked the first full year of Commission operations. As detailed in the Report, we accomplished the following:

  • Completed the basic organization of the Commission by selecting a Commission chair, selecting the sixth Commission member and requesting the detail of a NASA employee to serve as Executive Director;
  • Developed a strategy and plan of operations that defines and prioritizes Commission activities, sets initial Commission policy in several key areas, and defines respective Commission and staff roles and responsibilities;
  • Developed and deployed a suite of initial communications tools, including a Web site (www.centennialofflight.gov) that will ultimately feature a broad range of historical and educational information related to the centennial of powered flight as well as a Web-based calendar of significant centennial events, a Centennial of Flight exhibit and brochure, and, in conjunction with NASA, selected a design for the Commission logo; and
  • Reviewed major planned centennial events sponsored by numerous organizations throughout the country, with an initial emphasis on major organizations and planned activities in Ohio and North Carolina.
   The report also includes an accounting of funds received and expended by the Commission.

   Please do not hesitate to contact me, or the Commission staff, should you have any questions regarding this Report or the activities of the Commission in general.
