Welcome to The Silver Wings Fraternity!
Convention 2020 Postponed (6/25/2020)
The Board of Directors have “Officially” voted, in the best interest of the membership, to postpone the convention planned to be held in Chicago this year. The Illinois Chapter has graciously agreed to table their planning and pick it up again next year for Convention 2021. Critical Fraternity business normally conducted at the convention will be addressed, this year, by alternative means. The annual reports which normally are provided to the membership at the annual meeting will be published electronically via email and via this web site and voting of Directors to the Board will be accomplished via absentee ballots. Expect to see more information in upcoming editions of the Slipstream and on this site to explain the procedures.
Everyone show their aviator’s good judgement and stay safe!!
Congratulations to SpaceX (6/1/2020)
What a great accomplishment to further the country’s mission of Space Exploration!! It appeared that the launch and rendezvous of the capsule with the International Space Station went flawlessly. It seems we have begun a new chapter in this mission. Even the onboard live video images were a higher resolution and were so vivid. We continue into that “Final Frontier”. Best wishes to all of these voyagers who boldly go….
