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. When you get out… Read more...July 2017 Executive Director's Report

Many of the usual Saturday morning fly in breakfasts have shut down for the duration, many of the aviation activities are slowing down, and you have to get up pretty early to enjoy any comfortable flying. So what’s new! It’s that time of the year again, so just find a cool spot, sit back, and relax. When you do go flying, please watch… Read more...June 2017 Executive Director's Report

February 2017 Executive Director's Report
By Jim Timm February 2017 The month of January started off with bad weather for flying and it has seemed that almost every Saturday has not been the greatest for flying out for breakfast.
