After many years, we decided it was time to do some spring cleaning and freshen up our Chapter 1044 logo. The original logo had been in existence since the chapter’s formation and served us well. The new design incorporates many of the same elements but with a cleaner and more modern look. The new design is also much easier to incorporate into merchandise, print and online media.
At this past Saturday’s EAA Chapter 1044 meeting, member Alan Roberts was awarded the FAA’s Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award. The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award is the most prestigious award the FAA issues to pilots certified under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61.
This award is named after the Wright Brothers, the first US pilots, to recognize individuals who have exhibited professionalism, skill, and aviation expertise for at least 50 years while piloting aircraft as “Master Pilots”.
