Events

Chapter 1093 has many regular events, all open to the public. We also host school, scout and other groups for educational events. If your group would like to schedule an event please contact Sarah Pagano

Chapter Meetings

Chapter Meetings are held on the first Saturday of every month from 10:00-11:00. The public is welcome to join us for an aviation related speaker and some "hangar flying". 

Young Eagles

A Young Eagles flight is a FREE flight for children age 8-17. Chapter 1093 hosts these flights on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00-12:00, weather permitting. 

Adult permission is necessary. Please register at YoungEaglesDay.org. 

 Except in special circumstances parents do not accompany their children on the flights in order to accommodate as many children as possible.

We also ask that you limit your Young Eagles ride to once per year so that others may get the chance to experience the thrill of flight.

Santa Fly In

 

Santa Clause is coming in town but he's not bringing the reindeer this time! While Donner, Blitzen and Rudolph enjoy some time off before their big around-the-world flight Santa will be hopping into an airplane to visit the children of Midland!! 

On Sunday, December 8th from 1:00pm-2:00pm enjoy various children's craft stations while you await for Santa to arrive.

At 2:00pm we will go outside to watch Santa land. He will then greet the crowd and the children will have the opportunity to sit on his lap and give him their letter (which they wrote at a craft station). 

Depending on weather Santa will either remain outside by the aircraft or will come inside.  

Everyone who believes in the Magic of Christmas is invited to this FREE holiday event.
