Fitchburg Pilots Association EAA Chapter 1454 Monthly Meeting

Location visible to members


Hey everyone,

We have a very exciting meeting planned for this September with two guest speakers. Our own Jim Adams from the FAA and Pete Bouchard Chief Meteorologist for Channel 7 News in Boston. Together they have been discussing the topic of Aviation Weather that could be presented to our group in a fun and informative way. For those that tune in nightly to see Pete will be thrilled to know how lucky we are to have him as our guest. He is professional, accurate and entertaining. When you meet him please thank him for agreeing to come and for taking the night off of the air to be here. Attached below is some more information about Pete.


As 7NEWS Chief Meteorologist, Pete Bouchard oversees the operation of the 7NEWS Weather Department. He is the meteorologist on all 7NEWS evening newscasts (M-F, 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 11 p.m.) as well as 7NEWS at 10 p.m. on CW56. Pete's love for weather started when he was growing up in California. From the age of seven, he tracked the sun, wind and rain every year, until his family moved to Vermont in 1986. After experiencing his first REAL New England winter, Pete was destined for a career in meteorology. Pete graduated from Lyndon State College in Vermont in 1992. After landing a part time job in Portland, Maine, he headed to Bangor for a two year stint at WVII-TV, where he learned the ropes of the television business and was awarded his AMS Seal. He made another stop in Portland, before taking the weekend meteorologist job at WFXT-TV here in Boston. Then, it was back to Portland for four years to work for another FOX affiliate, before joining 7NEWS in the summer of 2002. He was twice nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Weathercasting at the Regional New England Emmy Awards. His awards in Portland include 1st Place for Best Weather from the Maine MAB, as well as honors from the Maine Associated Press. Pete and his wife have three children. In his limited spare time, he enjoys woodworking and fine carpentry.
