About the Foundation

The Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust was established in 1984 pursuant to Mr. Buehler’s Last Will and Testament in which he described his lifelong profound interest in aeronautical science. Emil Buehler was an aviation visionary, architect, and engineer. The majesty and mystery of flight was more than a private interest; it was a vision to be shared during his lifetime and beyond. This same vision is perpetuated today through the continuing philanthropy of the Buehler Trust.
