Wings Over the Branch

A Fly-In Honoring Morris A. Brown
September 10-11, 2021

Morris A. Brown served as the president of the Memphis Blackhawks Aviation Association and was committed to exposing young men and women to the aviation industry. His leadership and vision were instrumental in developing vital partnerships with various community leaders, and these invaluable partnerships helped build a legacy of success for area youth.

Join us as we celebrate the rich life and legacy of Mr. Brown during this fly-in ceremony where we'll dedicate a portion of the Luke Weathers Jr. Flight Academy in his honor.
