April 2018 Executive Director's Report
By Jim Timm  April 2018  Spring is in full swing, and the flying weather has been generally pretty good thus far. With some daytime temperatures already in the 90’s, and the increased number of bugs that come with that, I’ve already been finding my windshield spattered with an unavoidable bug or two. Spring is here, or I’ve just been...  Read more...April 2018 Executive Director's Report

By Jim Timm  January 2018  I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday season, Santa was good to you, and all your Christmas surprises were good ones.

By Jim Timm November 2017 It looks like the Arizona fun flying season may have officially started with the Copperstate Fly In at Falcon Field at the end of October.

July 2017 Executive Director's Report
By Jim Timm July 2017 Summer really is here! It doesn’t feel like it’s possible to get up early enough to beat the heat and go flying. It’s a taxing time of the year for both pilot and plane. Maybe I’m just getting old and cranky, but this time of the year flying becomes more of a chore than all fun. Thank goodness it doesn't last very long....  Read more...July 2017 Executive Director's Report
