Speaker: Joe Friend
Title: "How did I ever get to China to fly a Searey"

Our January speaker is our own Spruce Creek resident and airport Manager, Joe Friend.
This past fall he traveled to China to familiarize the Chinese with the Searey, experimental Amphibian aircraft that they have purchased. Joe has built two.

Joe retired from Bell Labs in New Jersey. He retired as the General Manager of Progressive Aerodyne, the builder of the factory version of the Searey. He has owned several aircraft, and has been deeply involved with flying and building Radio Controlled planes. He has also participated in the Civil Air Patrol, the US Coast Guard Auxiliary and the EAA. Joe moved to Spruce Creek in 2000 and married his wife Marina at a Toy Parade Ceremony in 2014.
