Major General George B. Harrison, USAF (Ret.) is one of ten (10) candidates who have been nominated for enshrinement into the Georgia Aviation Hall of Fame for 2023. While all these individuals have made outstanding and lasting contributions to the advancement of aviation or manned space flight, one, in particular, happens to be a resident of Peachtree City.

George Harrison is a Principal Research Engineer (Emeritus), at Georgia Tech Research Institute.  He moved to Georgia Tech upon his retirement from the U.S. Air Force in July 1997. His initial position at GTRI was Director, Electronic Systems Laboratory, responsible for the development, design, simulation, testing, and fielding of advanced electronic warfare systems, as well as development and implementation of test range systems and methods and later, became Director, Research Operations.

While serving in the U.S. Air Force and at Georgia Tech Research Institute, George has been active in a variety of civic, charitable, and community service activities. While in the Air Force, he served the Boy Scouts of America as District Chairman, Rhineland Palatinate, Boy Scouts of America, Council Commissioner, Trans-Atlantic Council, BSA, and Chairman, BSA Executive Board, Southwest Region, BSA. He was Chairman of the New Mexico Combined Federal Campaign, was the U.S. Delegate to the Aerospace Applications Study Committee, NATO Advisory Group on Aerospace Research and Development, and was the Air Force Sponsor, Military Operations Research Society. He is a founding member of the Board, Air Warrior Courage Foundation, providing financial and other assistance to fallen military aviators and their survivors. He currently serves as President of that foundation.

In general aviation activity, George has been extensively involved in volunteer and youth activities. As a Patrol volunteer, he served as a Check Pilot Examiner in powered aircraft and gliders. As a glider pilot, he has introduced young men and women to aviation through orientation flights. As an instructor in fifteen CAP glider summer programs, he has soloed numerous young men and women who have continued in aviation to become military and commercial pilots. As a Commemorative Air Force instructor and check pilot, he has trained many aviators in tailwheel Warbird aircraft.

Unfortunately, scams targeting our aging population continue to be a serious problem in PTC with losses frequently over $5,000 and sometimes over $100,000. If your senior group, sub-division, church group, or living facility is interested in receiving a presentation on “scams and fraud and how to protect yourself,” please contact Aux Officer Harry Schaefer at hschaefer@peachtree-city.org to discuss and request a presentation.
