Special Needs Day
presented by MyBinding.com

The Oregon International Air Show, presented by Standard TV & Appliance is proud to once again host Special Needs Day, presented by MyBinding.com. This day is in memory of long time community leader and volunteer, Margaret Teufel, who dedicated her life to serving others. The goal of Special Needs Day is to allow our hosted special needs guests an opportunity to experience the thrill of an air show and meet some of the best pilots in the air show industry. Our goal is to create a lasting memory for each guest that comes to our Show.
