Dale Lockhart (President 1972)
Dale Lockhart was President of FAW in 1972. During his presidency, the flying field was at Ronler Acres. Today this is Intel property near Orenco Station. The club rented a number of home plots for a field. These plots were part of a land scam, all the lots were too small for a septic tank and no sewer was available. The property stood idle until purchase by Intel.
Dale started flying with a single channel radio. Equipment improved rapidly and he enjoyed pattern flying and competed in the semi-nationals in Spokane, Washington.
The club had 30-40 people. They would meet the ESI company for meetings. The meetings moved to the basement of the Sunset swimming pool near Sunset High School.
Jack Becker (President 1991-1992)
"In '87, when I joined, the club met in the back of the hobby shop in downtown Hillsboro, the owners name was Wayne, this lasted for a while, I don't remember how long.
I took office in '91. We had that big jump in membership when the "rogue" fliers who used the street near Intel, I believe, got shut down and came to use our field. Membership went up to around 150 or so, as I recall, and we had a membership cap for a while. I'm sure you remember meeting a few times at one of the pubs in Beaverton, and then at the PGE building in Beaverton."
