Welcome to PAPA Online!

Welcome to the Petaluma Area Pilots Association‘s website. PAPA is a group of pilots and friends of the Petaluma Airport  [o69], in Petaluma, California. Formed in 1978, PAPA holds monthly meetings, sponsors monthly Display Days for antique and classic aircraft, hosts educational seminars, and provides aviation-related scholarships. It’s an active group of pilots that live, work and fly in the Petaluma area. Join us at one of our upcoming activities and see why this is such a great place to fly!

Major Announcment!

The Poker Run last Saturday allowed the winners
to make up some for the loses they may have experienced
in the Stock Market on Friday.
It gives this Author GREAT PLEASURE to Announce:
The WORST hand of ALL goes to Val Weston …To paraphrase a certain Green Frog:
It’s not easy beeing LAST (except in a PAPA Poker Run)
THIRD Place has gone to the Dogs! In this case to one named COCONUT! Woof Woof
SECOND Place (with a Pair of Queens) goes to Dan Bedford. Way to go Dan!
And reprising her WINING Role from Last Year is none other than NANCY SASSER.
(Maybe there is such a thing as Good Karma!) Congatulations!
and a big thanks to all who attended; Lets do it again next year!

Just got this from Gary:

Good morning Boys

I hope you are well! I am sorry to say that Don and I will not be doing our breakfast in July,

October is good, please inform the members and make the nessary changes to calendars,

web sites etc. as soon as possible.

Thank you again for everything, sorry we did not catch this sooner!
