Billings Flying Service new hangar

Billings Flying Service is expanding operations near the Billings airport and is preparing to provide a home for the Montana Army National Guard's helicopters.

Veteran Air Warriors, a local nonprofit started in 2018, plans to hold its inaugural banquet at the Billings Flying Service Hangar on Thursday, Sept. 12.

The banquet will feature a dinner, raffles, auctions, and guest speakers including Pete Hegseth, anchor at Fox News and U.S. Army veteran; and Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry, a U.S. Army Ranger and Medal Of Honor recipient.

Veteran Air Warriors was created with a mission to provide necessary resources to train and certify veterans so they may excel in their aviation career, according to a news release from the organization. Its vision is to guide veterans in aviation by helping relieve the financial burden that student pilots encounter throughout their training. The organization guides and continues to provide mentorship throughout a veteran's journey through training and to their employment.
