Welcome to the DuPage Pilots Association

For those interested folks the next association board meeting will be held starting at 10:30 am in the North Ramp Pilot Lounge on September 21. All are welcome to attend.

Good news: The Airport Authority has announced that the former Government Building on the North Ramp will have an extension of it open hours. The building which provides restrooms and the pilots lounge will now be open from 6:30am to 9:00pm.

There will be a change in leadership at the Dupage County Airport this month as the long time Airport Director David Bird will be retiring, Mr Mark Doles will be filling David's position on an Interim basis.

If looking for a place to fly for lunch, here are two suggestions:

    There is a newly found site http://www.fly2lunch.com/  where a search
    for restaurants on or near airports can be found. 

    Stop by the pilots lounge any Saturday, where you can find someone        willing to share a seat for the experience of a lunch flight, or if you            would like to fill such a seat a willing participant should be available.  

DPA Events:
The next event: Following a successful summer party on August 17th, the next major event will be the Annual DPA October Fest. As in the past the event will be held at the North Ramp. The association will supply the Brats plus. This event will be held on October 5, hoping for good weather.
