Pearson Airfield selected as a Historic Aerospace Site

“This is absolutely huge for Pearson, for the city of Vancouver and for the community,” said Laureano Mier, Pearson Air Museum manager and education programs coordinator.

Pearson was nominated for this historic recognition by AIAA Associate Fellow Erasmo Piñero, Jr. The airfield is one of the longest continuously operating airports (or airfields) in the United States and the first active airfield in the Pacific Northwest. It was selected by the AIAA committee along with Lunken Field, Ohio; Bell Aircraft, New York; and Willow Grove, Pennsylvania.
