News and events

Finally, we can hold events! We’re planning a BBQ for late May and an official first unveiling of the AT-19 for June.

Check back soon for updates and keep an eye on our Facebook page.

May 29, 2021 — Join us from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Auburn Municipal Airport (S50) in Auburn, WA for a members and friends BBQ and unofficial meeting. We’ll also be doing initial cleanup on our WWII-era Curtiss-Wright instrument trainer!

  • Driving: Go to the north gate at 30th St NE and honk so we know to open the gate.
  • Flying: Taxi to the far north end and we’ll direct you to parking.

In both cases, look for the grey Bölkow 208 with Swiss flags. Unfamiliar? You’ll know it when you see it!

Date TBA — Join us at Jefferson County International Airport in Port Townsend, WA for our long-awaited official public unveiling! In conjunction with the Port Townsend Aero Museum, this is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with historic aircraft. Rides will be available in our 1944 AT-19/Reliant UK military veteran. Visit the Aero Museum and learn about their youth program in aircraft restoration and flight training. Pilots can fly out to 0S9 and everyone can enjoy a great lunch at the Spruce Goose Cafe.
