Upcoming Dinner Program


Our October presentation will be a historic look at aviation accomplishments and technology advancements post
WWI.  While the Great War demonstrated how air flight could be used in battle, the post war era was driven by the need
to improve our nation’s infrastructure, the escapades of the barnstorming daredevils, the breathtaking exploits of record setters and the birth of viable commercial aviation. Join us as we learn more about the civil and commercial contributions to aviation of this important era and how it prepared us for WWII and beyond.
