History lecture – Bush Airport
Jun 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Bush Airport — originally called Houston Intercontinental Airport when it opened in June 1969 — first opened with two terminals, A and B. Both terminal A and B were designed as circular modules with four “flight stations,” and, in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, Terminal A’s north and south concourses were remodeled into linear concourses. In recent years, the airport added a new Terminal B South Concourse and C North Terminal.

Join us as we take a look back at the events that shaped the development and success of IAH.

Tickets are $10 or FREE for Members.

Wings & Wheels – featuring the Latino Pilots Association

The Latino Pilots Association (“LPA”) is a non-profit, volunteer organization comprised of professional pilots from different sectors of the aviation industry. Their goal is to lead by example, stay true to their core values, inspire, motivate and advise future generations of professional aviators. Through community outreach and with LPA member participation, they are a nationwide network of pilot mentors looking to give back to the Latino community, but not limited to any one particular demographic”.
