I wrote to Steve Pearson:
It doesnt matter how hard you work.
Or how good your ideas are.
If someone doesnt get the appropriate committee to pass and then the BOD to
pass the specific proposals nothing will change.
I can write all I want, but it takes the next step.
What you said is so true which is the principal reason that I
havent spoken sooner. This goes to the root of the problem at the USHPA some
very capable people working hard but without the appropriate oversight and
This situation is self-correcting in business. It doesnt matter how hard you
try or even if the rules are fair (e.g. currency fluctuations, China, etc.), you
eventually have to close the doors if you cant pay the bills.
The manufacturers and flight schools who have survived the last 40-50 years have
generally identified and provided the products and services that are important
to their customers. The USHPA needs to do the same. They will have succeeded
when membership (the only product they sell) renews because of the value of the
services provided rather than the threat of disciplinary action.
