Rosen Visor Winner Announced

Here’s some news about our most recent Free Gift drawing from SWPC President Peter Lubig.

Our most recent Free Gift drawing took place on June 18th. This time the Free Gift was a Rosen Sunvisor and our winner was Phil Pirrotta from Hillsboro, Oregon!

Congratulations, Phil!

Phil Pirrotta Tri-Pacer N6931D

Here’s some information on Phil from Eleanor: Phil has been a member since 2004. He owns a blue and white Tri-Pacer, N6931D, a 1957 model. He bases it at the Hillsboro, Ore., airport, which has an active Short Wing contingent. In the May-June issue of the Short Wing Piper News, Phil is quoted as saying, “Glad to report that since last year we have added a fifth Tri-Pacer, owned by Curt Jutzi, to the Tee Hangers here at the Hillsboro, Ore., airport. We helped new student pilot Curt fly this plane back from Dallas, Texas, during the summer. There also is a sixth Tri-Pacer in parts being rebuilt by Al Brewer that should join us in the near future. We meet every Thursday evening for what we call ‘Hangar Night’ made up of Columbia River Chapter members and friends.”

The SWPC is going to start a membership increase program, the outline is for each of the current 1,400 members to sponsor a friend, neighbor, co-worker or someone at your local airport and encourage them to  join the SWPC.

You can tell them about the benefits of being a SWPC member including

  • Our great social network
  • The SWPC News and the great stories
  • The new programs that we current have like our Free Gift give away & special rates on But most important – the great new friends they will make when  they join the SWPC

We will call this SWMIP, Short Wing Membership Increase Program. This SWMIP will start right away and finish sometime during the summer of 2013.

At the end of the membership erie we will be having a draw for free gifts for both the new members and sponsors (one draw for each group). The gifts are adding up, we have the Dynon Pocket D1 Pocket Panel, aircraft Tie Downs from Storm Force Aircraft, and more to come.

If you sponsor a member please have them note that they joined because of the Short Wing Member Increase Program and note that you encouraged them to join when they fill out their membership application. That way you will both be eligible for the prize drawings!
