Geriatric Pilots Association
Rochester, New York


The Geriatric Pilots Association was founded for the purpose of bringing together pilots and air crew people from World War II in memory of Pearl Harbor. As time marches on we are encouraging those who served in Vietnam and Korea to join our ranks.

The Geriatric Pilots Association sponsored the building of a model of the 1911 D-3 Glenn Curtiss Pusher airplane which was displayed to the public on March 15, at the Greater Rochester International Airport. The organization contributed about $12,000 to support the efforts of Parma resident Vet Thomas to construct the model. Vet was helped in the construction phase, which took about four years, by his father Rollin Thomas, Jim Birch, Art Theime and Stan Teachman (deceased).
