About The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron

The Spirit of Tulsa Squadron was established in Tulsa on November 17, 1990 and resides at the Tulsa Tech campus at Jones Riverside Airport in South Tulsa.

Each Saturday morning, our members gather at the hangar to work on restoring and maintaining our fleet of three World War II-era warbirds. During the warm-weather months we conduct warbird rides over Tulsa. This is one of the ways we raise funds to keep our aircraft flying. The other fundraising activity is an Annual Big Band Hangar Dance, which is held in late Fall. This event attracts nearly 1,000 people each year from all over the country and features a live big band, warbirds surrounding the dance floor, a silent auction and more. Donations can also be made to our squadron on this website.

Our squadron is a part of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF), which has chapters all over the United States. The CAF is a 501(c)3 non-profit that restores and operates the world’s largest collection of flyable World War II-era aircraft.
