Welcome to Inland Empire Flight # 41!
Flight 41, Inland Empire, had its beginning on March 2, 1976 when fourteen Daedalians in good standing with the National Order of Daedalians petitioned that a ‘Flight of the Order’ be established at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington. The name ‘Inland Empire’ was selected as it appropriately identifies and suggests the strong influence of the region versus a Washington only oriented flight.

Those Initial Signees of the Petition were:
Paul S. Cleland, Fred N. Thompson, Hans E. Hanson, Joe C. Williams, Bob M. Garner, Clyde E. Stewart (Founder Member), William M. Engle, Bruce E. Notson, Marvin L. Barber, Charles A. Lehman, Robert C. Cope, Robert A. Fromm, Thad A. Wolfe, David E. Thrams.

Since these early beginnings our flight has grown to 100 members. Our membership is represented by retirees and active duty from the Spokane area (Fairchild AFB) as well as those living in Central Washington, Northern Idaho, Eastern Oregon, and Western Montana.
The flight provides an annual college scholarship to highly qualified students who intend to pursue a career as a military aviator.

Scholarships (Total awards this year: $6,000)
