2017 EPPS Award Winner

Atlanta Aero Club Honors David Meilander and the Yellow Jacket Flying Club

The Atlanta Aero Club, a Chapter of the National Aeronautic Association will present David Meilander and the Yellow Jacket Flying Club with the 2017 Annual Epps Award for outstanding achievement and contributions to the Aviation Community in Georgia and the Southeast region. Pat Epps will present the award at the Atlanta Aero Club’s luncheon, March 16, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Epps Award is given to an individual, Company, or Government agency, determined to have made significant contributions to the aviation community. For more than 70 years, the Yellow Jacket Flying Club, a student organization at Georgia Tech, has promoted aviation in an intelligent manner with great professionalism that reflects upon the Georgia Tech community. David Meilander has supported the Yellow Jacket Flying Club for more than 40 years as a flight instructor, Chief Flight Instructor (25+ years), board member, and currently responsible for maintenance management of the Club’s four Cessna 172 aircraft.

The Georgia Tech Flying Club, a student organization at the Georgia Institute of Technology (www.gatech.edu), was established in 1945 at a meeting attended by about forty men. Initial flight operations were established with arrangements to rent Southern Airways airplanes at Chandler Field, now Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. In 1948 the Club received a war surplus PT-17 Stearman biplane and moved operations to Parkaire field (now Parkaire Mall), north of Atlanta. A year later the Stearman was sold and an Aeronca Champ was purchased. In 1952 operations were moved to Fulton County airport. Since that time the Club, now the Yellow Jacket Flying Club (www.yjfc.org) has primarily operated Cessna aircraft. The Club relocated to DeKalb-Peachtree Airport in 2012 and currently operates four Cessna aircraft.
