May 17, 2017 – Twenty-eight guests attended the NW Oregon UFO and Wright Brothers Master Pilot meeting at the Salem Airport. The weather was marginal but a few flew in to the meeting. Bert Zimmerly, our regional rep, brought some new people who will become UFOs. There were several new members including Steve Fusco (95) and his wife from Medford and a large group from Independence Air Park. Of course Bill Webber and his son Rick drove in from Spokane.
Rick Webber gave a presentation on the Basic Med program, followed up by Curt Cowley, the FAA man from Hillsboro, who talked about the newer gentler FAA and their relaxed enforcement program.
