Grey Eagles Western Area Report for Spring 2023

Greetings Fellow Grey Eagles!

Now that the world is somewhat back to normal, I’m excited to share our upcoming 2023 Grey Eagle’s scheduled events which are back and better than ever before!

Here’s the Great News:


The Allied Pilots Association in conjunction with The Grey Eagles are holding many future retirement dinners around the country, two of which will be held here out West. Phoenix is scheduled for May 5th, 2023 (Cinco de Mayo) and promises to be a great time!

The following month, June 3rd, 2023, the Los Angeles Domicile will be back at The Proud Bird Event’s Center right next to LAX Runway 25L’s final approach!

If you have retired from American Airlines and have never been honored at one of these dinners, now is the time! Every retiree is “good for one free dinner per cAAreer” !!!

You are more than welcome to be honored at the domicile dinner of your choice—not just where you retired from. Please contact Toni Kennard/APA at (817) 302-2279 to schedule you for the next event.

The great news is that we will be hosting more of these in the future thanks to large numbers of retirees, so if these dates don’t work, make sure to let us know and we’ll put you on the next available dinner of your choice!

As always, please come out and support our newest retirees at our dinners; it truly is a memorable experience!


Grey Eagles local area luncheons are back and being held regularly in (LAS/PHX/SAN/SNA/RNO) and we are looking for volunteers for additional locations in Northern California, Portland, and Seattle areas.

Please volunteer if you able to help us fill these spots! Email me at: [email protected] if you are interested or want more information.


For the last few years, LAX APA Family Awareness along with The Grey Eagles has hosted a modest hospitality tent along vendors row across from the Stead Airport Tower and Terminal. This location give a great view of the finish line and the unlimited jet class parking area. Unfortunately, this will be the last year for the Air Races, so if you aren’t able to join us on the Alaska Cruise, please stop by the tent and enjoy the camaraderie.

…and saving the BEST FOR LAST…


If you haven’t signed up yet; what the heck are you waiting for ?!? This one promises to be a “bucket list trip” of a lifetime! I look forward to seeing all of you there !!!
