JATA 2012 Awards Issued

Traveling up the West Coast of South America, the Andes Mountains will be to our East. Eventually we will reach Central America where we'll follow the Panama Canal and head Northwest into Mexico. Our next legs take us back into the United States along the beautiful West Coast into the Pacific Northwest and just touching Alaska before heading East across Canada. Our journey ends rounding the Western portion of Lake Superior and back into KSAW where we'll knock back some cold ones and tell tall tales of our flying exploits.

On behalf of EMT and member pilots, thanks Michael for putting the hard work into this Bid Division sponsored event - as usual your planning skills were as good as all the other events you planned going way back! Your support on all fronts is appreciated here at AirSource.

Well done to those who completed it. I kinda ran out of time (and blown up engines on the JS41) part way around.

That's a pity, the JS41 is usually a kind aircraft. One thing for sure though - with the award in your logbook, you are the only pilot in all of AirSource to receive it - that's special all on it's own! :)

First off, I want to personally thank everyone for their support and kind comments. It means a great deal to me to be able to throw these events together for my fellow AirSource pilots and friends.

I have some ideas up my sleeve for some really fun events in the future. I am learning some scenery design and stuff for both FS9 and FSX so we'll see how that pans out.

Secondly, I want to thank Mark Richards and our CEO Norm Edwards for their knowledge, trust and love for this organization. July 6th begins my 11th year flying for AirSource and I hope to still be here for many years to come and I also hope to become even more involved at some point maybe from an operations standpoint.

Again, my sincere thanks!
