President's Message

WPA State President George Steed

Please accept a sincere ‘Thank You’ for electing me to lead the Washington Pilots Association in 2017.  It is a great honor and one which I will not take lightly. 

A word of introduction:  I began my flight instruction in 1975, ran away to join the Navy in ’77, became a bombardier and flew in A6-Es out of Whidbey Island and off USS Coral Sea from ’79-82, and finally got my pilot’s license in 2005.  I achieved my instrument rating in 2007, became an A&P in 2012, and The Lovely Mrs. Steed and I bought a 1966 Bonanza in early 2013, just as we were beginning retirement.  From then until now each day has been more fun than the last.  I expect that to continue.

Shop The Official WPA Apparel Online Store!

Since becoming a reality last fall, the WPA Online Apparel Store has been a huge success with members throughout the state. This partnership with our approved vendor, Budd Bay Apparel, allows WPA members to purchase a variety of Official WPA embroidered merchandise from the
WPA Online Store. All embroidery is the highest quality. Please allow four to six weeks for order delivery as orders are collected by the vendor and produced all at once. By grouping orders and running them together, we can keep the costs down, although some wait times might be a bit longer.

WA Pilots Association Online Store

The WPA Online Store is currently accepting orders until April 9th, at which time we will close the Store, collect all orders, and proceed with production. So, place your orders now!

The Official WPA Logo and Chapter personalizations are available from a dropdown menu. Please be sure to use the dropdown menus for selecting your size and the embroidery you want.
