More detail on this person: I was really surprised to see my father's name as a potential VHPA member. I "googled" his name and it came up first in your website. I didn't know that he ever flew helicopters. All I knew was that he flew jets...and never did while he was in Viet Nam. The "powers that be" thought he was too old then to fly!
