District 10 of Pilot Club International (PI) was organized in 1939.
In 1977, PI made the change from numbers to state names for Districts. District 10 became the Kentucky-Ohio-West Virginia (KY-OH-WV) District.
Leadership from our District has been well represented through the years having five members serve as Pilot International Presidents:
