BPA-Black Pilots of America! 

Black Pilots of America!

Bob and I took a trip to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, last month and joined in the annual “fly–in” celebration of the BPA!  Many of these pilots flew their own planes to the event and participated in taking people up for rides. President Brian Worthington greeted everyone and made sure that there was plenty of viewing of “Operation Skyhook” and delicious southern eating! We were delighted at the skill of these fliers at the Pine Bluff Regional Airport “Gider Field” as we saw balloon drops and more. The Bronze Eagles of Texas, Roscoe Draper Chapter from Philadelphia, other cities like Kansas City, were represented.  

We were invited by none other than one of the Founders of BPA, an Arizonan Les Morris, to attend.
