Hi WAPA Supporters and Sponsors! We hope you have all had a busy and profitable 2016. We are happy to announce the :
2016 Worldwide Aircraft Propeller Association Conference November 6-8, 2016
in Oakland, California at the Waterfront Hotel,
Jack London Square
We are planning a big event this year, with a record turn-out (since everyone loves a winter trip to California) AND for the first time we are offering an additional Eddy Current Seminar to our members. We are very excited to stretch WAPA’s wings and offer a ‘for credit’ ECI level I or level II&III recurrent training seminar. Anyone interested in attending the ECI seminar should email me at moc.r1508574321ellep1508574321orpna1508574321villu1508574321s@mas1508574321 to confirm your seat – we plan on this being more a prop shop interest item. However, if any Sponsors are interested please call me.
10 Washington Street, Oakland, CA 94607
Group Code: Worldwide Aircraft Propeller Association
Please make your reservations on or before October 12, 2016 for the $199 per night group rate!
Below is the Conference Registration/Membership Form and Sponsorship Application.
For those new to Bay Area travel you have several options. Flights arrive and depart at ALL THREE Bay Area Airports, San Francisco (SFO), Oakland (OAK) and San Jose (SJC). Rental cars, Uber, Lyft, Taxi’s are great for ground transportation. BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit – our electric commuter train) is direct at San Francisco AND Oakland airports. The hotel will provide a no cost shuttle from the Downtown Oakland/19th Street BART Station to their door. Plan a couple extra days to see the sights – San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Sausalito, Alcatraz, Muir Woods, NASA, Hiller Aviation Museum, Winchester Mystery House, and much more. The Waterfront Hotel central location is perfect to stretch your stay – the San Francisco/Oakland Ferry departs every 30-60 mins a block from the hotel.
We look forward to seeing you all on the San Francisco Bay!
