Our Events

Fly-Ins and Meetups

With many of our members spread across New Mexico, fly-ins give us the opportunity to network, disseminate ideas, and get some hours in the logbook! We also host virtual meetups and happy hours.

Community Outreach & STEM

Members have a unique skillset that can contribute to local science fairs, career days, and even lesson plans.


Prospective papers can be reviewed by peers prior to submitting to a conference or journal. We also hope to host workshops and prepare interested parties to apply for USAF Test Pilot School, Naval Test Pilot School, or National Test Pilot School.
