2. Membership Benefits: Delta Golden Wings is a fraternal organization of retired Delta Pilots (and spouses) and all active Delta Pilots who have reached the age of 50. We invite you to join.
Why join? The benefits include:
- A roster of all our members is published annually and includes the address, phone number and email address of each of our members. In the time since retirement it becomes more difficult to keep up with our retired colleagues. Our roster is an excellent resource to be able to keep up with your Delta pilot friends. Since company policy will not allow this type of information to be given to other retirees, this is the one best way to keep up.
- Emails from DGW concerning events pertinant to retirees
- An annual Fly-in/Drive-in at Peach State Airport in Williamson, GA.
- Annual reunions in different cities to see some of the same friends we worked with over the years.
- Annual Christmas party located in Dunwoody, GA.
- In 2017,the annual reunion was in Ner Orleans, LA,will be in Lexington, KY.
- In 2018, we will be in Denver, CO.
- All feature city tours, banquets and plenty of good fellowship. Spouses or a guest are most welcome as well.
The membership cost is just $40 a year.
Here’s hoping you will join Delta Golden Wings.
