Come Fly With Me 

Portland Houseparty Announcement

For Possible Ticket Holders

After much discussion and deliberation the NAME Board has decided to postpone our much anticipated Houseparty one more year. It is clear to us that our country needs time to heal and to get past this pandemic. It has been a long hard haul but we are confident that our new dates will give everyone the buffer they will need to get well, get vaccinated and get excited all over again about flying with NAME Air.

Our new dates will be May 6-8, 2022, with Pre & In-Flight Instruction (classes) on May 5th. Let me explain our travel planner for the next year as we know a lot of the side trips you had planned could change. 

We are asking everyone to stay registered to hold their seat. If you do not cancel, nothing except the dates will change for you for the moment. If you do decide to cancel your tickets you will receive a full refund and not be charged a cancelation fee. 

If you are not flying with NAME Air at this time and would like to get in-line to purchase a ticket (Submit your registration as soon as possible and you will be put on a wait list and notified as soon as a seat becomes available.), please fill out the Registration Form at miniatures.org to hold your spot on our wait list. 

Over the next few weeks our flight attendants will be contacting our Pre & In-Flight Instruction specialist (teachers & Theme Luncheons) to see if they will stay with the same scheduled instruction. If they will, your spot will be held in these events (classes & Theme Luncheons). If our specialists would like to submit new instruction courses we will contact you and give you a full refund for your course. We will be gathering a bunch of information for new Pre & In-Flight Instruction Courses and everyone will have equal time to get signed up for them sometime around December, 2021. 

We ask that if possible you do not call the Help Line (NAME office) with questions about our Instruction Courses as our Help Line will not have the updated information for a couple months. We will contact you by the end of February if your Instruction Course has been cancelled. We just ask for patience as we work through this new schedule and get it finalized. 

Our Flight Crew is so excited to be able to still bring you this vacation as a live event and we will send out Travel Planner updates as we have new information about your trip. I know those packed bags are burning a hole in your bedroom floor, but as long as we are all safe in the end and still get to vacation together, as Pilot I couldn’t ask for a better outcome. I said I’d get you all safely to your final destination and that’s what I intend to do. 

So from our Portland Flight Crew we say, “Stay home, stay safe and thank you for Come Flying With Me.”
