Our Story

Post 9  was started back in 1995 by Doug Powers, former air-traffic controller and corporate pilot, who is now an advisor of the post. Since then, we have had many alumni of our post graduate to become pilots, aircraft mechanics, air traffic controllers and many more desirable jobs in the aviation industry!
