Arlington Fly-in volunteer events provide a great way to connect with like minded aviation enthusiasts, work parties allow us to have fun and make new connections while lending a hand in making sure a variety of tasks that help sustain the event get accomplished.   Join every month or when you have just a few hours to spare.   AWO is a great backdrop to the work party events, and as usual among aviation enthusiasts time is spent looking up at the sound of engine noise and stories of flying experiences are not rare.

If you can come lend a hand any Saturday, just show up at the Hangar (4700 188 th Street NE and ask for Bruce)

Mid-Week work available in both day and evening hours, contact Bruce (206-380- 1333) to schedule.
