The 2018 Annual Meeting of the Classic Jet Aircraft Association will be held in Houston, Texas February 14th and 15th in conjunction with the National Warbird Operators Conference. The event will begin with an evening reception on Wednesday, February 14th. Thursday will include a visit to the Johnson Space Center and special behind the scenes tours along with regular association business in the afternoon. Thursday night is a joint reception with NWOC followed by the full NWOC schedule beginning on Friday. There will be some special, classic jet specific meetings and sessions at NWOC to make the entire event very valuable to classic jet operators.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All participants in the NASA tour on Thursday must be US citizens, and have a government-issued photo ID in their possession during the entire tour. Completely enclosed, low or flat heeled shoes are required to comply with safety regulations.

February 7th Update -

There are no more slots for the NASA tour.  We can put people on standby.  If you wish, email cjaa@comcast.net

Wednesday night, we have a very special treat for our evening social at Boondoggle's Pizzeria & Pub.  Renowned test pilot James "JB" Brown will give a presentation on some of his flying experiences.  It's difficult to say what he will talk about ... having more time in a stealth aircraft than anyone else ... F-22 test flying ... or his 7-hop trip across the US in a MiG-21 a few months ago.  Probably a little of all of that.  If you've met JB, you'll know how engaging he is.  If you haven't, you're in for a treat.  JB currently flies an L-39 (and MiG) for the National Test Pilot School in Mojave.  You can read more about him here - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_E._Brown_III

Boondoggle's is 2 miles from the Hilton, at 4106 E. NASA Parkway, El Lago, TX 77586.  We will be in the upstairs private room so Zach can show us how to do carrier landings.  Please to show up at 1800.  If you're late, no big deal, but no need to be fashionably late.  We will have appetizers and pizza.  Yes, they serve beer ... Duh!
