On January 26, 2017, the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) received the prestigious 2016 New Business/Development of the Year award at the Spotlighting the Cliff Awards event held by the Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce at the Kessler Theater in Dallas.
The Headquarter's staff members were in attendance to accept the award. The CAF was honored for the organization’s dedication to preserving American military aviation heritage, for the CAF’s commitment to excellence and for supporting the south Dallas community. The CAF announced the move of the Headquarter's offices to Dallas in 2014. Since then, the offices and staff continue to grow at the Dallas Executive Airport location. Last year, the community presence was especially felt at the CAF Wings Over Dallas Airshow, which will be held again October 6-8, 2017.
