Missouri Pilots Association Convention Recognizes Outstanding Achievements


By Carmelo Turdo
The 2016 Missouri Pilots Association (MPA) Convention was held Saturday at a new central location, the Inn at Grand Glaize in Osage Beach at the Lake of the Ozarks.  The annual event is a way for MPA members in chapters from across the state to renew friendships, review the issues of the current general aviation industry and learn ways to improve the skills of each pilot.  After a day of interactive presentations covering aviation safety, government regulations and MPA business, members enjoyed a tasty dinner and the traditional state and chapter awards presentations.  Over 100 members from 13 chapters were in attendance, an increase over that of previous years.

Attendance Trophy: Mid Missouri Chapter
