    News article naming Humrickhouse International Association of Resource Pilots President:
    "Forestry's Chief Pilot, Bruce Humrickhouse, was elected president of the International Association of Resource Pilots (IANRP) at its annual convention this August in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    Humrickhouse, a 25-year veteran of the Division of Forestry, has been the Chief Pilot for the Division since 1979.

    The International Association of Resource Pilots is composed of pilots who fly in the highly specialized field of natural resources, whose duties include fire fighting, wildlife research and surveys, radio telemetry, law enforcement and search and rescue. The association meets annually to provide member pilots with information and training in the use of state of art equipment. Pilots are also given the opportunity to "test" fly new aircraft that may be suited to specific natural resource flight missions."
