The Torrey Hawks Newsletter was first issued on September 17th, 2007 shortly after the club became USHPA Chapter #270.

In the spring of 2008, I attended an annual USHPA Board meeting and passed through the Craters area of Arizona to visit Torrey Hawks member Kevin Kennedy. I had flown there a year earlier with Kenny Bryenton, and Kevin had rescued Kenny's van which had gotten stuck on the steep climb to launch (Thanks again Kevin!!).

During my 2008 visit, Kevin mentioned that he'd like to see more visitors, and that gave me the idea to feature Kevin in a "Pilot Profile" in our monthly Torrey Hawks Newsletter. That sparked a series of pilot profiles that were included in our news letter for a number of years. I'd like to start adding them to this topic.

Here's that first pilot profile from March of 2008 (in both PNG and the original PDF):

Thanks to Kevin Kennedy getting me started, I began to look for more opportunities to feature our Torrey Hawks members in our monthly Torrey Hawks Newsletters. The next opportunity was April 12, 2008 which was the day scheduled for the solos of the young couple Jay and Heather. They were featured in our second Torrey Hawks Newsletter:

"Fledgling Hawks Spread their Wings for their 1st Solo Flights" (April 2008)
