"The life of an aviator seemed to me ideal. It involved skill. It brought adventure. It made use of the latest developments of science. Mechanical engineers were fettered to factories and drafting boards while pilots have the freedom of wind with the expanse of sky. There were times in an aeroplane when it seemed I had escaped mortality to look down on earth like a God." – Charles A. Lindbergh, 1927 . Pan American Airways pioneer, American Icon.

PAN AM’S WORLDWIDE FAMILY REUNION JULY 31 – AUGUST 3, 2014
Reunion Gala Dinner - Cradle of Aviation Museum Sat Aug 2
DUE TO OVERWHELMING WORLDWIDE RESPONSE,
REUNION REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL
SUNDAY JULY 13TH.
From the first first historic PAA Clippers that began transatlantic flights off the shores of Port Washington, to the iconic techno-modernist structure of JFK’s Worldport, to the Art Deco delight of Marine Air Terminal at LaGuardia – no other city in the world can compare the indelible marks Pan American World Airways left on it.
NEW YORK/ LONG ISLAND – from the city skyline that once included the name Pan Am reaching up into the sky to the thousands of employee homes that surrounded it, WE COME TOGETHER ONCE AGAIN to celebrate the memory of the airline and the people from all over the world that made the airline great.
Make plans now to join your fellow co-workers & friends from ALL PAA BASES, POSITIONS, AND DIVISIONS this summer: PAA Cargo, World Services, Missile Range, In-flight, RKL, PAX SERV, Ground Support, and on and on – ALL PAN AM and all gathering on Long Island/ NYC at Pan Am’s Worldwide Family Reunion 2014.
Located on the western edge of the Atlantic, the eastern edge of the continent, with great airfields, and next to America’s largest city, Long Island was the logical place to begin or end long distance flights. There were more notable flights–transatlantic, transcontinental and around-the-world–from Long Island than from any other place on Earth.
YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER TO ATTEND ANY OR ALL OF THE REUNION. YOU MUST BE REGISTERED NO LATER THAN JULY 13, 2014
You will be fully entertained while attending Pan Am’s Worldwide Family Reunion.
Registration Fee includes all Speaker/ Author presentations at the host hotel Marriott in Uniondale.
As you can imagine, a mega-event for “The World’s Greatest Airline” being held in “The World’s Greatest City” presents countless options. We chose to base the reunion on Long Island by JFK/ LGA because of Pan Am’s deep historic and personnel history that runs all through the surrounding area- while still providing fast access to Broadway. The location is also a great place to plan your summer vacation around while exploring all the excitement- or tranquility the East Coast offers.
