Robert Doughty has Flown West

Dear Friends,

I am sorry to report that an old PAPA member, long time Petaluma pilot and Airport organizer, Robert Doughty, has flown West. We are working with his sons Mike and Dennis, along with the Petaluma Police Department to have his service at our PAPA Hangar on Saturday, August 18th, at 2 PM. Robert retired from the Force and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada.

Police will have a Chaplain and Color Guard, we will direct traffic from the main gate to the hangar and fly a “Missing Man” flight.

Mike’s phone # is 707-658-0402, he and Dennis’s e-mail’s are in an email just sent to PAPA members. Anyone who would like to help out with the service, including flying, please call me.

All my best,


Gary McDonald
