DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A Medal of Honor winner and the chief instructor for the Tuskegee Airmen are among four people being inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in Ohio.

Next year's inductees were announced Monday. They include U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, who received the prestigious military award and developed techniques for helicopter air ambulance rescue in combat.

Also honored is the late Charles Alfred Anderson, who helped develop a civilian pilot training program for blacks and was chief instructor for the Tuskegee Airmen, the first black military pilots.

The other inductees are U.S. Navy Capt. Robert "Hoot" Gibson, a flight test pilot who flew five NASA shuttle missions, and the late Dwane Wallace, who led Cessna Aircraft Co.

They'll be inducted Oct. 4 in Dayton.
