2018 Everett, WA UFO/WBMP Pilots Meeting

May 16, 2018 – The UFO Everett group met at the La Bistro restaurant near the Paine Field.  This is a community college that teaches culinary skills to its students and they provided a fine lunch for all to enjoy.

We had 32 in attendance which included many UFO active members with friends and spouses.  The weather was a bit marginal which prevented some from attending but many locals made it and Bill Webber and his son Rick flew in from Spokane.

They main event was the presentation of the Wright Brothers Master Pilot award to Bob Roetcisoender.  This award was presented by the FAA Seattle Region Safety Manager, Jean Mpouli.  Part of the presentation is to recognize the spouse, Bob’s wife Sue, in recognition of the all the support that she has given over the last 50 plus years.

Everyone attending had the opportunity to share their flying history by passing the microphone around.
