Flight Path Board Names 2013 Officers

Rowena Ake of Westchester was re-elected president and board chair of Flight Path for 2013 during a meeting of the nonprofit organization’s board of directors. Flight Path operates an aviation museum and learning center in the Imperial Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport.

Ake has served as Flight Path president since 1999. A resident of the Westchester-Playa del Rey area since 1952, she is past president of the Westchester Rotary Club and the LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce. Ake is a charter member of the Westchester Vitalization Corp. and holds the coveted Silver Beaver Award for her extensive volunteer service to Boy Scouts of America. Ake was proprietor of a local dry cleaning business for 40 years and more recently has worked as a real estate broker.

The Flight Path Board elected Nancy Niles to the new position of president-elect, designating her to succeed Ake next year. Niles, a resident of Pacific Palisades, previously served as corporate secretary and as airport community relations director.

The board re-elected Robert Acherman of Torrance, Ethel L. Pattison of Manhattan Beach and Vincent Migliazzo of Westchester as vice-presidents, John Garstka of Westchester as chief financial officer, and Jo Ann Hudspeth of Playa del Rey as treasurer. Robert Smith of Hawthorne was named to succeed Niles as corporate secretary.
