Welcome to the Air Patrol Page


The Air Patrol Shrine Club are Shriners who have a common interest in aviation. Our objectives are to stand ready to be of service to El Bekal Shrine, and always demonstrate safe, efficient, practical use of aircraft.

Prerequisites for membership in the Air Patrol are that Nobles need to hold or have held an Airman Certificate issued by the United States Federal Aviation Administation, or the equivalent from another country. No ownership of an aircraft is required. The required Airman Certificates include those issued to exercise the privileges of pilot, student pilot, aircraft and power-plant mechanic, parachute rigger, aircraft dispatcher, control power operator, flight navigator, etc.

We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at local restaurants selected by the Commander at 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Other activities are "hanger" parties, Fly-ins, support of other events and services that may be required by the Potentate and Divan. Our ladies participate in meetings and activities. No Club uniform is required but, a Club jacket and shirt may be purchased if desired.

Initiation Fee to join the Air Patrol is $35.00 which includes the current year's dues. $15.00 Certificate of Membership, Membership Card, I.D. Badge and Shrine Airman's Wings.

In order to join the Air Patrol, get an application by contacting the Shrine Office for the phone number of any Patrol Officer.
