LAKELAND, FL, July 9, 2010 -The Seaplane Pilots Association Board of Directors announced the election of new officers at a June 28, 2010 Board of Directors meeting. Chairman Henry Hinman had planned to retire from the Board to focus his attention on the Seaplane Pilots Foundation, which he was instrumental in founding two years ago.

SPA extends sincere appreciation for the hard work and dedication of Henry Hinman and other outgoing officers Telford Allen, President and Lyle Panepinto, Secretary. Mr. Hinman devoted many long hours as well as significant financial contributions to our organization during his four-year tenure.
