Navy League Memphis' 2017 edition of our popular Naval Aviation Familiarization Day and Wine Under Wings will be held this year on Thursday, October 5, at the Wilson Air Center, Memphis International airport for the eighth year in a row. Click on the picture above to see a slideshow of past year's event.
During the day from 10 AM to 4 PM, students from Memphis City Schools, Shelby County Schools and midshipmen from the University of Memphis, along with a large group of Navy Delayed Entry Program candidates, will have the opportunity to view front-line Navy and Coast Guard aircraft and talk to the crews about the aircraft missions and about how to become involved in Naval Aviation. Recruiters from the Navy Recruiting District Nashville will be available with promotional material. Vintage aircraft will also be available for viewing. Attendance is FREE. If you, your school or other group is interested and/or has questions about this event, please contact Cory Whipple at 850-990-5507.
For the evening, a military-uniformed sword arch from the University of Memphis Naval ROTC will provide a formal entrance for those attending our Wine Under Wings event. Later, our Millington Sea Cadet unit will smartly present colors to kick off the brief awards program portion of the evening. The local Memphis Knights will provided "big band" background music while guests may try tasty hors d'ouevres and sample dozens of great wines in the presence of vintage and military aircraft. Local treasures will be offered in a high-quality silent auction which benefits the Navy League Scholarship Fund and Memphis Sea Service Units.
Local business leaders, citizens, and military from the area Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard commands are invited to attend the festivities.
