Apparently not; last US ace of the Great War died in 93; all the others since then.

I regret that my info is not as detailed as i would like it to be , however i read an article printed in an Ottawa newspaper several years ago about a Canadian pilot who the sole remaining WW1 pilot, I'm not sure if he was an ace or not, but the fact that of all the men who served as airmen in WW1, he is all we have left in Canada.
