Bringing People Together

The Brandywine Airport Pilots Association is a club which promotes social and educational activities for pilots at Brandywine Airport.   We have social gatherings, fly-outs, and occasionally bus trips to places of interest to the general aviation community.   We also sponsor FAA Wings Program safety seminars and other educational activities for local pilots.   BAPA's mission is to bring people together.


An Email Listserv has been setup to allow easy communication between BAPA members, and other in the community.

From "Short Final":

Ground: "One Two Alpha, turn right on Hotel, taxi to parking.   Bear left, disabled aircraft on the right."
One Two Alpha: "Roger, I have the disabled aircraft in sight.   Looking for the bear."

From "On the Air":

Syracuse Approach: "Baron One Eight Five Three Bravo is cleared for the visual, runway 28.   Be advised there is a red and white blimp with the name "Snoopy" at your 12 o'clock, 4 miles and 1000 feet."
Baron: "Baron One Eight Five Three Bravo cleared for the visual 28.   Negative contact on the blimp."
Syracuse Approach: "By the way Five Three Bravo, is your color red?"
Baron: "Negative, we're white, gold and black."
Syracuse Approach: "Shucks, I always wanted to say "Snoopy, watch for the Red Baron at your 6 o'clock."
