Presidents Corner March 2007:

 

We had a great Young Eagles turnout at Discover Aviation April 21st at Jean.  Hope you had the good fortune to attend.

As usual, the Discover Aviation committee hosted another fun event with an airshow, static displays, and lots for everyone to do. 

Our pilots flew 107 Young eagles in Chamber of Commerce perfect weather. Many thanks to Mike Smith and his crew for the

safe and fun flying, and to Jim Bonelli and team for the smooth running of the administrative duties.  Once again, Charlie Braun

and his squad made sure everything stayed safe and organized on the ramp, and as usual, Gail Smith kept our bellies full with

excellent vittles. I still think Mike Perger’s Jag beat the Pitts, but it was close in any event.  Thanks again to all. 

 

Our April 10th meeting included a visit to the Staggerwing project.  Dave, Mike, Jim and Larry gave us a status update on the

project along with some very interesting Staggerwing history.  Though they have a long ways to go, it’s easy to see that the beauty

in this aircraft is more than skin deep.  Anyone want to sand some bulkheads?

 

We’ve planned a spring picnic for our May 9th meeting at Jim Bonelli and Glen Carlson’s new Hangar (#E-2) at Henderson. 

Jim will provide the details in our next newsletter.

 

See you there,

 

Terry Frazier
