How We Got Started

WingMate Publications has a new owner!

After 24 years of producing the Airline Crew Organizer and Flight Record and 19 years of putting together the Pocket Flight Log and Monthly Planner, I was reluctantly going to close down WingMate Publications.  I know this disappointed a lot of my very loyal customers, but I have been retired as a United Airlines Captain for over 10 years now and I decided that it was time to retire from this also.  It had been an interesting, sometimes challenging and always rewarding time for me.  I have greatly appreciated the very nice testimonial letters that I have received from so many of my customers over the years and particularly  since I announced my retirement from producing WingMate, and I am relieved that I found someone to carry on the business.  Please meet Renee Gerrans -

My name is Renee Gerrans.  I am a United Flight Attendant from Sonoma County, based in San Francisco.  I have been flying for 30 years and have been using the Airline Crew Organizer since it's inception.  I have never missed a year!

When I received the postcard from Bill McGuire stating that he had been retired for 10 years and was now retiring from WingMate, I was very disappointed and sad.  I mean, I was happy for him, but what about my Organizer?  I kept reading the postcard, and when he said that he was interested in someone continuing to produce the organizers and flight logs, I went from sad to excited.  I immediately emailed Bill and we eventually met.

This Organizer is so good, it cannot cease to exist!  I cannot imagine not having one.  I know that I can continue on with Bill's help and I look forward to hearing from you.

So, with the continuation of WingMate Publications assured, it is time for me to say thank you again to all of you who have used my products over the years and to close this chapter in my life.  It has been fun, thanks again.
