After much consideration the crew at the National Warbird Operator Conference (nwoc.aero) have made the difficult decision to push back its 2021 conference, which was to have been held at the 4-Star Omni Corpus Christi Hotel in Corpus Christi, Texas on February 25-28, 2021 to the same location on February 24-27, 2022. The driving force behind the decision was the litany of potential travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in the attendees’ home states (traveling to and from Texas is not currently an issue, nor was it expected to become one), could have severely hurt the attendance if they had moved forward with the conference in 2021.
The annual get togethers were always a highlight for warbird operators and given the success of the 2020 event held in Mobile, Alabama, the 2021 event would have been no different. Due to the uncertainties of the times surrounding the global pandemic, this decision should come as no surprise to anyone. The choice of holding the NWOC at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel was due to the fact that the facility already had COVID-19 safety protocols in place in accordance with local and state requirements. That being said, the NWOC Crew was confident that attendees would be as safe as possible at the actual event. In addition, the Crew had established their own safety measures, which were similar to what AOPA had during the Arsenal of Democracy, in place for the event.
The move to 2022 will have no effect on the outstanding programs and camaraderie that has been the hallmark of each NWOC since its establishment in 1993. See you in 2022! Visit www.nwoc.aero
