Peter EdwardBrien
It is with sadness that the MAAA received
news of Peter’s passing following a long
battle with illness. Peter exhibited great
leadership skills and definitely made a
huge contribution to aeromodelling in
Western Australia.
Peter was a member of the MAAA Council for a number of years
and made extremely valuable contributions to the future of our
sport. He was one who had a good business acumen and was
not afraid to think outside the norm. Although staunchly working
for Western Australian aeromodellers, he also had the ability to
always consider the national interest.
Peter’s foresight and planning brought the 2016 World
Championships control line to Perth and this would not have
occurred without his advocacy. Peter did not only compete, he
got in and worked for all aeromodellers, his passing is a huge
loss to our community and we pass on our deepest condolences
to his family.
