The Okanogan Ferry County Chapter of the Washington Pilots Association meets Thursday, March 17th at Whistler's Restaurant in Tonasket. Dinner at 6:30pm will be followed with a presentation on "Survival, Search and Rescue" by Justin Smith of Ferry County. Justin has extensive training and experience with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Air Search/Aviation Emergency Services program. Anyone interested in aviation is welcome to attend.

The Northwest Aviation Conference and Trade Show was held February 26 and 27 at the Western Washington Fairgrounds in Puyallup. This was the 6th year the local WPA chapter has sponsored the Okanogan Ferry County Tourism Booth. Lee and Lola Orr of Tonasket and Justin and Carol Smith of Republic lead this effort every year. Funding is provided in part from participating city and county hotel and motel taxes and by private contributions of goods such as boxes of apples and apple juice. The booth is staffed by volunteers from the Okanogan Ferry County WPA. The booth features every aspect of Okanogan and Ferry Counties that makes them a wonderful place to visit or live.
