ABOUT US

Chapter 26 was founded in 1974. The Happiness is Delano contest was flown by hundreds of Southwest pilots, including some of the greats. We're working to put our history online as we have time.

CHAPTER NEWS

Catch up with current chapter news, featuring contest results and life behind the scenes. Updated on a very irregular basis, because we're usually out flying in our free time.

¡VIVA SANTA MARIA!
AUG 31 - SEPT 2, 2018

For 2018, we are launching a new contest at the Santa Maria Public Airport in Central California wine country. Please join us over Labor Day weekend!

We admit is was a blow to cancel Happiness is Delano 2017 after 43 years. But this year we've bounced back and we're working hard to make ¡Viva Santa Maria! the stand-out contest on the West Coast. Those joining us can look forward to... A hotel at the airport. Speedy scoring. Custom clinkies. Upgraded lunches. Famous Santa Maria-style BBQ tri-tip and chicken at the banquet. And, to top it off, the weather in Santa Maria in late summer is considerable cooler than Delano.
