HPA grad, Josh Brehm passed away on Thursday, July 28, 2011 due to a plane crash. After graduating from HPA in 2001, Josh went on to become a captain at Southwest Airlines, where he served for ten years. He was an officer in Chapter 1423 of the EAA, in addition to being the web designer and one of their newsletter writers. Based in Winterville, North Carolina, Josh owned his own 1940 Taylorcraft BL-65 and graciously gave rides to kids, friends and family. Josh was passionate about flying and getting children excited about aviation, as he was involved in Young Eagles and Wright Flight. We are proud to have shared a brief moment in time with Josh, and HPA offers our prayerful condolences to the Brehm family.
