AAHS Annual Meeting


With the recent concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we here at AAHS want to ensure we have a worry-free event, both at our aviation venues and for your travels to and from our event. As many of us are in the ‘higher risk’ category for catching this virus, and will be traveling by air to attend the event, we feel that we can reduce the opportunities for our members to fall ill by moving this event to a later date, when presumably this virus will have run its course, and our infrastructure has better methods of maintiaining healthy public environments.

We have connected with our museums, the Fairfield Inn & Suites, and other event vendors and have garnered agreements to MOVE our dates to October 2-4th with no penalty. We realize some of you may have to update flight schedules (as we do here in Southern California), and we wanted to get this word out to you as quickly as possible to ensure flight date changes will not be an issue. We have also looked into updates various airlines have made to their flight change policies due to the COVID-19 concern. For a limited time, several airlines including American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, JetBlue and United are waiving change fees on flights booked in March.

We will also phone already registered attendees to confirm this communication and answer any questions directly. The AAHS registration website will be updated, and, we will have a related article in the upcoming Journal with additional details on our event, including additional speakers, exciting new book sales, and a new location for our Saturday lunch Program (we’ll visit Hiller Museum on SUNDAY instead of Saturday).

If you would like us to process a refund for your registration, contact the office and we’ll make it happen for you. We do plan though to have a great aviation weekend, and hope to see you there!

Jerri Bergen, President, AAHS
