President's Letter-march 2021

Greetings WAMA members, corporate members, friends and supporters!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I and the Board at WAMA hope you are enjoying your summer.  We hope you are starting to reconnect with friends and family.  We have been busy having our virtual board meetings and planning some upcoming activities for the rest of this year and next.  We know many companies are starting to bring employees back into the office and the days of sweatpants will be in the past.  Perhaps, there will be a hybrid situation with some facilities.  I hope, at some point, we will be able to reunite in person and what a wonderful time that will be.  Stay tuned for a possible in-person gathering sometime in the Fall of 2021.

You will notice that we have sent out the quarterly newsletter that highlighted some recent events including WAMA news, Tech articles and a Spotlight article on Jeff Hare of JH Aviation Safety Services, Inc.  We trust you will learn a bit more about his company and perhaps, how he can help your flight department with cabin safety training.  Additionally, we are delighted to welcome a new training facility that recently had its ribbon cutting opening on June 24th  this year.  The facility, which is located in a new hangar that was just completed at the Hudson Valley Regional Airport, has a program offered by the Dutchess Community College for aircraft maintenance technicians.   There is also an article on the latest Charles Taylor Award recipient, Mr. Ted Stone, historically recognized and presented on Aviation Maintenance Technician Day, AMT Day, May 24th.

Hope to see you all soon!


Jody Kerton

President, Westchester Aircraft Maintenance Association. WAMA
