BREMERTON — Jim Posner has been elected president of the Bremerton Pilots Association.

The retired information-technology consultant replaces Don Dicksion as leader of the group of small-plane owners.
Bremerton Pilots Association now stands at 27 members, and Posner will try to increase that number, despite rough economic times.

“That’s one of my top priorities, to get a lot more members,” Posner said.

Many members store and fly their recreational aircraft out of Bremerton National Airport, including Posner, who owns a Beechcraft Bonanza. Other members are corporate pilots or representatives of the aviation businesses located at the airport.

The Association also supports young, future pilots through scholarships, and currently has scholarships for two more students to help defray costs of pilot training,. Interested young people can contact Posner at jimposner@comcast.net or (415) 990-0664.

Posner, 67, has been flying all of his adult life, earning a private pilot’s license in 1966 and becoming instrument rated in 1975.

He and wife Elizabeth have lived in Brownsville for about six years, coming here from San Francisco.
