Bio/Historical Note: In 1955 a group of thirty-two people met in Estevan, Saskatchewan to discuss the formation of a Saskatchewan chapter of the National Flying Farmers Association. On 2 November 1955, the National Flying Farmers Association issued a charter officially granting membership to the Saskatchewan association. The first annual meeting was held in Regina in 1956. The Saskatchewan Flying Farmers' Association was incorporated as a non-profit organization in Saskatchewan on 3 March 1977. The objectives of the Association are to promote the practical use of airplanes in the agricultural industry; to sponsor education and research on general aviation; to urge minimum regulations for general aviation; to encourage landing strips close to towns and cities; to develop public acceptance of light aircraft and to promote safe flying through education of pilots in the use of radio and other navigational aids. Executive members include a president; vice-president; secretary; treasurer and directors. Other officers include a public relations officer; newsletter editor and junior-teen advisor. The Queen is the official hostess of the Association. Monthly meetings and annual conventions are held and activities are planned to include members' spouses and children.
