Welcome to The Silver Wings Fraternity!
Work Around for a Technical issue (10/16/2020)
It has been reported that some members have had problems logging into this site. The most probably cause may be that we need to update your credentials. If you have a problem let us know by sending us a Contact form telling us of your problem. We will attempt to fix it as quickly as possible. Others have reported difficulty in getting to the protected pages in the “Members Area” after logging in. A workaround is to use the Google Chrome browser (vs. MS Edge or Firefox) to view the site.
Election of Directors (10/14/2020)
Ballots have been sent out via email to all “current” members for the election of Directors. This election is normally conducted at the annual membership meeting at the Convention. However, as the Board has postponed the convention due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it will be conducted this year via on-line, mail-in, or email-in. If you are a current member (i.e. Life Member or Annual Member with dues current) but did not receive a ballot you may request one by using the Contact form on this site or emailing email@example.com.
You may cast your vote on-line from this site (the easiest way) by:
- Log into the Member’s Lounge using your email address as your ID, and your member number as your password.
- Once logged in select “2021 Directors Election Ballot” under the “Members Area” menu.
- Put in your name and your choices.
- Select the “Submit Vote” button at the bottom of the page
If you have forgotten your log-in credentials, request them via a Contact form.
Fly-in Opportunity (9/27/2020)
The leadership of Sun’n Fun announced this past week their plans for a scaled back fly-in event in early December. If you have been looking for such an opportunity, maybe this is one to watch for. See the details at the link below.
SUN ‘N FUN HOLIDAY FLYING FESTIVAL AND CAR 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. 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.
