The Silver Wings Fraternity Aviation Scholarship Foundation will host its 2014 annual convention in Pensacola, Florida, from Oct. 2-4.
The convention hotel is the Comfort Inn on North Davis Highway and is located northwest of the Pensacola Regional Airport (KPNS). Most activities take place on Naval Air Station Pensacola.
President Walter Baker said tours are scheduled at the National Naval Aviation Museum, selected areas of the Naval Survival Training Institute, and other venues.
Members will enjoy lunch at the world-famous Cubi Bar, and the latest IMAX wide-screen movies.
The banquet will be held at the Officer’s Club and the scheduled keynote speaker is NASA Astronaut Nicole Stott, who has flown on three space shuttle missions and served two tours aboard the International Space Station.
Silver Wings Fraternity is a charitable and educational membership organization founded in 1958 by aviation pioneers. Its membership consists of pilots and others with a genuine interest in aviation, who provide educational opportunities in aviation to young people, and who seek fellowship and camaraderie with aviators worldwide.
They host and maintain their clubhouse at the annual SUN ‘n FUN International Fly–In & Expo in Lakeland, Florida.
Funds from the Aviation Scholarship Program are given annually to non-profit aviation educational organizations and to qualified high school and college students pursuing careers in aviation.
