Dayton 2020

Check Out What's On the Schedule

2020 Annual Meeting

2020 marks the 27th consecutive year that AFPAAA members have gathered together to renew friendships, tour military installations and aerospace facilities, hear from top Air Force leaders, conduct association business, and tell a few (well, maybe more than a few) war stories. This year, AFPAAA's annual membership meeting will take place in Dayton, Ohio, from April 30th to May 2nd.

The birthplace of aviation, Dayton was home to aviation pioneers Wilbur and Orville Wright, and today Wright-Patterson AFB and the National Museum of the Air Force continue to honor their legacy. Dayton's place in aviation history guarantees lots of interesting things to see and do, and meeting organizers are putting together a great schedule that takes advantage of the unique opportunities the area offers.

You can see a detailed schedule of events for each day here. Check back often for schedule updates.
