Our Open House on Saturday, May 9th was a HUGE success thanks to our KLVJ family. Over 400 pilots and families enjoyed BBQ, beer, kids activities, and some fantastic prizes.

Below is a list of everyone who helped make this event so great.

To the hundreds of pilots and community members who visited Pearland Regional we say THANK YOU. We couldn't have asked for a better turn out. We hope you enjoyed stopping by as much as we enjoyed hosting you.

Air Professionals
The entire Air Professionals team was a huge help from the very beginning. They recruited volunteers to direct cars for parking, donated a TON of cold beer, assisted in cleaning up the ramp, and even helped us clean up after the event.

For the raffle, Air Pro donated a $25 gift certificate and two $15 gift certificates for their pilot shop.
