A note from Saeed:

Just want to say that belonging to a great club like the Mohawk Valley Firebirds makes all the difference. My success would not have been possible without the encouragement, sincerity and help from club members. I am truly fortunate to belong to the club.

Since I have joined the club I have learned a lot from the expertise of some club members such as Joe Petro. Roger Gugnacki and Ray Stringer have stayed late spotting for me till dusk at times, only so that I could get some practice. Encouraging words from several club members have helped me a lot. Also, Tom Fiorentino has, on several occasions, made time to come to the field just to help and coach me with difficult/problematic maneuvers.

In simple words I could not have done it without the encouragement and support from a great bunch of guys who make up the Mohawk Valley Firebirds.




  We pride ourselves with having such an outstanding pilot as a fellow Firebird member and we wish him great success in future events and contests!
