Albert M. Orgain IV, a shareholder in the Richmond office of Sands Anderson, will be among the 2010 class of inductees into the Virginia Aeronautical Historical Society’s Virginia Aviation Hall of Fame.
According to the VAHS website, the program honors Virginians “who have made significant and lasting contributions to aviation while preserving their stories for future generations.”
Orgain’s aviation career includes a tour of duty as a combat gun ship pilot in Vietnam and service as a helicopter section leader with the Virginia Army National Guard. A portion of his law practice focuses on aviation accidents, especially matters involving collisions between aircraft and surface-bound towers and cables.
Orgain is immediate past chair of the VAHS. He earned degrees from the Virginia Military Institute and Washington & Lee University law school.
The induction will take place on Nov. 13.
