Regularly Scheduled Meetings
Flight 56 was originally chartered on 20 March 1978 as Test Flight by the flight test pilots of Edwards AFB CA. In May 2013, the members of Flight 56 elected to change the flight’s name to Glen Edwards Flight to better honor the base’s eponym and better capture its history. Our ranks have included numerous astronauts, test pilots and other highly skilled pilots from the flight test community, some of them living legends. Our ranks have also included many highly accomplished pilots with distinguished flying careers from the operational community. We strive to encourage aviation careers among the youth of the Antelope Valley, an area rich in aerospace history.
