This Is Your Association

We’ve been getting unsolicited feedback from a few of you over the past months about how things are going with FNL Pilots Association, your airport advocacy group.  We’ve received many good comments on our monthly Pilot Refresher Courses.  The members who have talked with officers or board members have told us that our choice of topics and the presentation of those topics has been well received.  If you have an idea for a topic or know of a relevant presenter, please share with us.  This is your Association.

In concert with the local EAA chapter, we’ve started an EAA-sponsored IMC Club for instrument pilots and those that aspire to fly in Instrument Meteorological Conditions.  We meet the third Wednesday of each month at 7pm in the jetCenter hangar, watch a quick video that describes a particular IFR scenario, and then discuss what we would do in that situation.  Participation earns you a WINGS knowledge credit.

We had a BBQ last Saturday (August 13) to encourage pilot socialization.  Airport Director Jason Licon gave us an update on what’s happening at our airport.  We want to do more of these social events, and would also like to see more of our members attend (we had a turn-out of about 30 members out of almost 150 of you).  It’s “free” food (paid for by your dues).  This is your Association.

One or more of our officers and board attend meetings of the Northern Colorado Airport Commission, the Colorado Aviation Business Association, and the Colorado Aeronautical Board.  We monitor the activity of these various groups with an eye toward our members.  Additionally, we get an airport update from Jason Licon or his staff at our monthly Officers & Board meetings.  It’s our job to represent your interests.  This is your Association.

We use our periodic newsletter to keep you informed and up to date on FNL.  If you want to see us cover something that we’re missing, let us know.  This is your Association.

Our contact information is on our web page.  Feel free to contact any of the officers and board if you have a question, comment, or concern.  This is your Association.
