Senior Member Meeting Change

Starting today there will be a change to the meeting schedule for senior members. Whereas the squadron has been having a monthly Tuesday night meeting in addition to the composite meeting, that meeting will be dropped in favor of focusing on a stronger senior portion of the composite meeting.  With the addition of our new ES Officer, this will give the seniors more access to consistent emergency services training, and with flight training increasing it is anticipated that there will be more flying opportunities with a Saturday context.  Please use the contacts page to reach out to staff if you have any questions.

The next senior meeting will be Saturday, September 9th.
