WPA State President Les Smith

Two big meetings within 30 days! I’m referring to our General Membership Meeting on Saturday, February 22nd followed by the WPA Annual Retreat on March 22nd and 23rd.

The Northwest Aviation Conference and Trade Show in Puyallup was a success with attendance numbers up over last year. Our WPA booth was VERY crowded on Saturday. My thanks to all of those who volunteered to staff the booth throughout the weekend. During the course of the show, we saw WPA new membership and renewal numbers grow by twice what they did last year. During the Puyallup event, the Washington Pilots Association held our Annual General Meeting. We recognized the significant contributions of some key individuals for their efforts this year with our Annual Awards.

Bernie Lyman Award – Jim Flynn (for his work in building and supporting Green River Chapter)

Pilot of the Year – George Futas (for his efforts this year on behalf of Paine Field)

Right Stuff Award – John Townsley (for a successful conclusion to a night time engine failure)

Thank you and Well Done, to each of you! 

Elections were also held and the following state officers were instated, including:

East Side Vice President – Norm MacPhee

Airport Affairs Director - Mr. Tom Jensen

Safety & Education Director - Mr. Ken Davies

Membership Director - Mr. Frank Hummel

and as President - yours truly.
