Aron Faegre was a wannabe seaplane pilot from age 5, when he began helping in the portaging of canoes between fishing lakes in Northern Ontario, near his family’s cabin.  He knew “there must be a better way” and when a float plane flew over one day, he knew he had seen it.  Unfortunately it took 40 more years for him to achieve that dream.  His day job is as an architect, engineer, and landscape architect, running a small design firm in downtown Portland.  One of the firm's specialties is airport planning, and the other, wilderness camps. Aron has served as the CSPA President since 1999.  He enjoyed the benefit of a close personal friendship as neighbor to founding member Dave Wiley for nearly 15 years.  He has led our group through some difficult times and with the help of his trusty VP, has taken up the mantle of seaplane access with renewed vigor.
