The three legendary pilots will participate in a panel discussion at the luncheon, moderated by aviation photographer Paul Bowen.
The three pilots are known inside and outside the aviation industry for different piloting skills.
Wagstaff is a world champion aerobatic pilot, while Lacy flew as a United Airlines captain before retiring to sell and fly airplanes for Learjet founder Bill Lear. Lacy also is the namesake of Clay Lacy Aviation, a multi-pronged aviation services and sales company based in Van Nuys, Calif.
