Welcome to The Silver Wings Fraternity!
Congratulations to SpaceX (6/1/2020)
What a great accomplishment to further the country’s mission of Space Exploration!! It appeared that the launch and rendezvous of the capsule with the International Space Station went flawlessly. It seems we have begun a new chapter in this mission. Even the onboard live video images were a higher resolution and were so vivid. We continue into that “Final Frontier”. Best wishes to all of these voyagers who boldly go….
Memorial Day Holiday (5/27/2020)
Hopefully all of our members got the chance to enjoy the Memorial Day Holiday with loved ones. Plans for the summer are still looking a little shaky. Your Board of Directors are communicating regularly to assess the situation and make a final determination regarding the SWF Convention 2020 Scheduled for Sep.
Air Venture 2020 (Oshkosh) (5/2/2020)
Jack Pelton (Experimental Aircraft Association CEO) has announced the decision to Cancel Air Venture 2020, the largest airshow in the world, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In his announcement he sited the near practical impossibility of ‘social distancing’ over 600,000 attendees to the event. The expectation is that they will come back next year with an even bigger and better Air Venture 2021 show!
You are cordially invited to join the Silver Wings Fraternity if you have an interest in aviation, regardless whether or not you are a pilot.
