Much of the early aviation history in Louisville is the result of the Aero Club of Louisville. Founding fathers included pilots returning from WWI & businessmen who saw the potential of aviation beyond military applications. A. H. Bowman, Sidney Park, and Louisville mayor Huston Quinn were among the 18 men who founded the Aero Club.

"Aviators and aerial observers of the World War formed the Aero Club of Louisville yesterday, to use Bowman Field, recently accepted by the War Department as a flying field for reserve officers in the Air Service" (Courier-Journal, Oct. 26, 1922). Bowman Field is one of the longest continuously operating airports in the U.S.
