Welcome to Silver Wings Fraternity!
It is with deep regret that we learned of the passing of Bill Johnston (#14101) on September 1st. He was a member for more than 14 years and for most of that time served the Fraternity on the Board of Directors. He held the position of National Secretary for many years and he helped with the production tasks of the Slipstream newsletter. He was also a member of the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter where he served as the Treasurer. Bill’s friendly style of leadership will be greatly missed. We have all lost a great friend.
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. Silver Wings Fraternity Membership is open to any person with a genuine interest in aviation. Levels of accomplishment are recognized for Active Members who achieve specific aviation events to include; Solo flight in a powered aircraft, the Silver Anniversary of (25 years since) that Solo Flight, and Members who soloed more than 50 years ago.
Membership is open to men and women of all nations regardless of race, creed, color or national origin. We look forward to welcoming you into the Fraternity. Learn more about our long and rich history by going to the “Purpose and Goals” and “SWF History” under the About Silver Wings tab above. If you have any questions, just write our National Secretary at the Contact Tab above.
Visitors to Sun’n Fun are cordially invited to stop by our clubhouse on “Clubhouse Row” to check us out and meet our friendly members. We look forward to meeting you!
We have plans underway to build a similar facility at “Air Venture” at Oshkosh so that we may host a members hospitality center there as well.
