History[edit]

Langley Federal Credit Union was chartered on April 17, 1936,[2] by twenty-five National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (now known as NASA) employees who each deposited $1 to pay the charter fee. In 1942, the Credit Union changed its name to Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory Federal Credit Union. The next year, Air Force civilian personnel were admitted for membership and the credit union joined the Virginia Credit Union League. October 1956, the credit union officially changed its name to Langley Federal Credit Union and Air Force military personnel were allowed to the field of membership. Langley Federal Credit Union has served the entire Hampton Roads community since 1936. Today membership at Langley FCU is available to employees and/or members of approximately 1,000 employers and associations located in the Hampton Roads region.
