SOLD OUT – Come Fly With Me: A Sky High Gala

November 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm



Please call Jon Zella at 315-428-1864 x315 to see if tickets have become available. 


First impressions matter.

In November, after years of planning and months of construction, Syracuse Hancock International Airport unveils its spectacular $65 million terminal renovation. Visitors and passengers will soon be welcomed to Central New York’s gateway through a brilliant, modern design.

Syracuse Hancock International Airport has been a part of our national history since 1949, from its namesake, Congressman Clarence Hancock, to the home of the 174th Attack Wing of the New York Air National Guard.

Our community has an impressive aviation history that is featured at the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Companies in our region produce cutting edge aviation related technologies that are used around the world. Even the famous song, “Come Fly With Me,” an American classic that became a top hit for everyone from Frank Sinatra to Michael Buble, was written by Syracuse song writer and WWII test pilot, Jimmy Van Heusen.

We invite you to be the first to celebrate our stunning new airport along with the grand opening of its brand new Regional Aviation History Museum on November 10, 2018 at “Come Fly With Me – A Sky High Gala,” presented by Hancock Estabrook, LLP, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. This black-tie optional event will include tours, cocktails, an elegant dinner, and an entertaining program on the history of the airport by OHA’s Curator of History, Robert Searing.

Please join the Syracuse Regional Airport Authority, the Onondaga Historical Association (OHA), and the Hancock family with your sponsorship or attendance of this once-in-a-generation event.
