Alumni Donates Wingtip Project Back to PIA

Alumni Donates Wingtip Project Back to PIA

PIA received a generous donation from a former student.  A trip home to Pittsburgh brought Dave Flichr and his friend Mike Fariss to PIA for a brief tour.  Like many alumni, Dave recalled his own wingtip project as he admired the completed projects on the walls of the airframe shop.

Ironically, Dave had left his own wingtip project with Mike soon after his graduation from PIA, when a new job took him cross-country.    After the visit to campus, Mike was able to find the project that was stored at his family’s home.  Rather than shipping it to him, Dave generously considered donating the wing to PIA.

Thank you, Dave! We will proudly display this wingtip in our airframe shop!
