From our Northeast Regional NBAA Representative, Brittany Davies

Happy New Year and thank you for all of your hard work in 2018! As we charge ahead in 2019, the general aviation industry is facing significant disruptions with a large part of the federal government having been shutdown since Dec. 21st. Thousands of employees at the FAA and Departments of Homeland Security and Transportation are furloughed, halting critical functions.

From operators not being able to obtain ferry permits for aircraft, to training centers seeing approvals for their instructors and simulators lapse, the shutdown has real impacts on general aviation. Please use the Contact Congress link below to educate members of Congress about the challenges our industry is facing during the prolonged government shutdown. Also, please share this with your association members as you see fit.

Feel free to connect with me should you have any questions. Thank you again for your continued support. 

Brittany

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of longtime WAMA/PAMA member,

Richard "Mac" MacVicar


Mac passed away on Saturday the 15th he was 91. Aviation was his life  he had his commercial pilot single and multi engine, instrument, ground instructor, A&P, IA.  Grew up in Bergenfield New Jersey went into the Navy right after high school.  He soloed in 1945 and got his A&P in 1947.  He worked in the Teterboro area  until 1964 when he moved to Randal Airport and opened up his own maintenance facility ( Macvicar aircraft service) up until last week he was still working. Was  talking about retirement but just couldn't do it.  Mac was a member of PAMA, WAMA and the QB's. He will be missed!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the MacVicar family

Obituary and Services info



In the effort to continue to meet the Aviation industry’s increasing needs, Dutchess Community College is expanding its aviation program to include a certified Airframe and Powerplant mechanics program.

This new program will be a certified FAA part 147 school housed in a new state of the art hangar. DCC, in collaboration with Dutchess County, is constructing a new aviation educational building and hangar at the Hudson Valley Regional Airport that will be home to this new program.  The program is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2020. 

In preparation for the program, there is a need for maintenance equipment, parts and tools. The aircraft and parts do not need to be airworthy or operational, because they will be used solely for instructional purposes.      (Read More and Parts list)
