Patrick Halligan, member of the MN Pilots Assn Board of Directors, has been working with Steve Johnson to establish a unified place on our website where interested people can look for aviation scholarships. Details will be announced at the 2018 GMAG. If you are aware of aviation scholarships which may benefit people in Minnesota please contact Patrick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Brad Thornberg for having one of the five photos he submitted chosen to serve as our backdrop for the 2018 Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering! Thanks also to Sarah Dickerson, who developed a terrific flyer for our upcoming event!
Thanks to Gregg Strathy and Jim Peterson, board members of the MN Pilots Assn, for helping the Duluth National Weather Service design their webpage! Here is a note we received from Geoffrey Grochocinski, of the Duluth NWS…
NWS Duluth, surrounding NWS aviation focal points, and our aviation partners,
I’m happy to share NWS Duluth has a new aviation weather webpage after several months of work by our aviation team, including partnering with aviation partners for feedback, looking for ideas and inspiration from other NWS offices across the country, and building the page. This was a team effort by Justin, Bryan, and I of our aviation team. This new page will be more useful and user-friendly for our typical aviation users than our previous page. The new design is an inspiration from NWS LaCrosse’s aviation page. Our partners really liked NWS LaCrosse’s tabs and thumbnails design.
We would like to extend a special thank you to our FAA partners in Duluth and pilots with the Minnesota Pilots Association for their time in discussing our old website and the design of a future webpage with us. Thank you very much to Justin Schultz for his work into assembling potential options for the page and to Bryan in building the page.
MN Pilots Assn…making a difference in Minnesota Aviation
