Delaware Valley Wing History


The Delaware Valley Wing was formed in 1990, and the founding father was Col. Jim Lieblang.


The name, Avenger Squadron, was chosen with the idea of obtaining an Avenger, which was made in the local area in Trenton, NJ.


This proved to be too big a challenge for the financially poor unit. After working and producing a few air shows, we were able to purchase an Interstate L-6 in 1994.


We moved from back room meetings at Trenton Airport to a place of our own at Northeast Philadelphia Airport where we kept the L-6.


After a few years, and an increase in membership to over 50 members, we decided to become a wing and change our name. Since we were never going to be able to "afford" an Avenger we changed our name to a more "generic" name thus we became the Delaware Valley Wing !


We Eventually move to Princeton, NJ, where we remain to this date.
