Zone Director Bio

My love for airplanes and just about anything else that can fly goes back as far as I can remember. As a young lad I was completely absorbed in plastic model airplane, and jet kits, while my friends were into the plastic model car ones. I did glue together the odd car kit, but found them to be very boring, eventually they all ended up as airplane - car hybrids. Funny thing is most of my plastic airplane and jet models met the same fate. But always ending up being some sort of flying machine dreamt up out of my imagination. The first time I ever saw a model airplane fly was in 1966 at Redford Elementary School in Port Alberni. There were three or four guys flying control line and radio controlled models there most weekends, as was I watching and dreaming. I took on a paper route and collected bottles, eventually building and crashing a few .049 tissue-dope control line models and also a plastic Cox one that I got for Christmas. It came just about complete in the box, and I'm pretty darn sure from Parkers Hobby Store on Argyle Street, LOL. Somehow I slipped away from the model airplanes as most of us do, until my wife Dorothy and I had our two boys Mark and Sean. Both of whom learned to fly model airplanes and take in many of the Abbotsford, Victoria and CFB Comox full scale Airshows right from the time they were babies until they would no longer go. Over the past 30 years or so I have been very active as a member of the PDQFlyers Association, most of which as an Executive member in one position or another. I'm very pleased to have been able to instruct many students while they learned how to fly. I have also had the pleasure of being the Contest Director at Air-Shows, Fun-Flys, Fly-Ins, Float-Flys, Indoor Flying and model building instruction sessions for students. I'm also a member of the Nanaimo Modelaers and have recently been given an Honorary Membership to the FVRCF Association, for which I'm extremely grateful. As a Zone Director I will do my very best to ensure that the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada continues to serve it's Membership as it has historically been done in an affordable, safe, respectful and fun way.
