Welcome to Sierra Flight # 27!

Sierra Flight 27 was chartered in May 1969. Prior to that date, Sacramento area Daedalians were members of Golden Gate Flight 5, located at Hamilton AFB near San Francisco. Many of the original charter members retired in the local area and were Daedalians until their final flight.

When there were two active Air Force bases in the Sacramento area with scores of active duty and retired pilots, the Flight had a high membership of 273. Due to military force reductions and local base closures, combined with the passing of many of our WWII veterans, membership has declined.

Flight 27 provides scholarship funds each year to outstanding California State University Sacramento AFROTC cadets. This money is matched by National. The Flight also annually presents a Daedalian JROTC Achievement Medal to many local area high school cadets.

A major event for the Flight was the hosting of the 1992 National Convention in Sacramento. National commanders visited the Flight in 1998 and 2014 with high praise for the Flight’s activities.

In July 2014, the Flight recognized an ad hoc group of Daedalian widows who attend our meetings. Subsequently, several other individuals who are not membership qualified, but enjoy and support Flight activities, were also invited to become “Friends of the Flight”. Each individual is presented with a name tag identifying their status.
