Winter Warm Up

Event Details

The National Gay Pilots Association's Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up Presented by United Airlines takes place February 9–12, 2023.

Please save the date and check back for more information.

Miles of blue skies soar over the San Jacinto mountains and provide a majestic backdrop for the NGPA's flagship Palm Springs Winter Warm-Up Presented by United Airlines. With deep Mid-Century Modern roots, the quirky, welcoming spirit of Palm Springs provides a perfect oasis for the NGPA's extremely popular winter fly-in event that has steadily grown over the years.

The Palm Springs weekend starts on Thursday with an early bird reception, and then officially kicks off on Friday at the Palm Springs Air Museum, home to one of the largest collections of flyable WWII-era aircraft in the world.

Saturday is jam-packed with aviation speakers, an aircraft static display, and the NGPA Palm Springs Dinner Gala. Members love the chance to experience the community-building and networking of the Winter Warm-Up surrounded by the warm spirit of Palm Springs.

Registration also includes admission to the very successful NGPA Industry Expo Presented by United Airlines, which is the second-largest pilot recruiting and aviation networking event in the U.S. The NGPA Industry Expo Presented by United Airlines features keynote speakers, hundreds of ATP-qualified active airline pilots seeking employment, aviation products and services, and educational seminars for both commercial, business/corporate, and general aviation pilots.

We hope you'll join us next February in beautiful Palm Springs!
