Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Missouri Aviation Historical Society Meeting Set for October 13

Missouri Aviation Historical Society

The Missouri Aviation Historical Society is an informal group of folks with a love of aircraft, and we are striving to record and document the rich aviation history that has been a part of the great state of Missouri for the past century. From Benoist to Zenith, the aviation industry in the "Show Me" state has always been at the forefront of technology, and has produced some of the world’s best known aircraft. Famous pilots, from Jimmy Doolittle, to Slim Lindbergh, all called Missouri home for a portion of their lives, and made significant contributions to the advancement of aviation. One of our goals is to establish a Missouri Aviation Hall of Fame.

While our initial focus is on Missouri aviation history, we do welcome all regions of the country, as well as International interests. We meet monthly at 190 Carondelet Plaza, Suite 600, St. Louis, MO 63105. We also send out a quarterly journal. Our next gathering will be on Thursday, October 13th at 7 PM This has been an active summer for aviation events in the St. Louis area, that kicked off with Marine Week, Fair St. Louis, and more. A slide show of these events, and a video of member Dick Windler’s flight in the CAF’s restored B-29 “FIFI” will be shown. A business meeting, will be held at 6 PM, prior to the general meeting, and anyone who would like to attend, is more than welcome. Refreshments will be served. For directions or more information, please contact Dan O’Hara at 573-529-2539 or email Hope to see you there!
