2015 Florida Annual Luncheon Meeting

Jan 23, 2015 – The Floridian UFOs held their 7th Annual Luncheon Meeting in Lakeland at the Hilton Gardens Inn on Friday, January 23rd. Attended by 71 members and guests of which 19 arrived by plane. International Member Charles Strasser from the Isle of Jersey, was instrumental in arranging the appearance and participation of Guest Speaker, Phil Boyer, former AOPA President who spoke to us on his predictions for the future of General Aviation in the U.S. Unfortunately, rapidly approaching strong winds and heavy rain prompted cutting short the last part of the meeting wherein new members give a short presentation about their aviation backgrounds. One member, Manny Brecker made it only as far as the runway where a flat tire prevented him from making it to the hotel. The Meeting was presided by Charlie Lopez, Regional Manager for Florida.
