Sept 15th fly-out Harley Davidson Plant Tour

We departed Newark about 8:45 am, the weather was just beautiful, flight was enjoyable with all the trash talk coming from the Twin Comanche. Upon arrival I had assistance from the “Slow Pilot” to shuttle the passengers back and forth to the Harley facility. Some took the short tour and the others the long tour. If you didn’t own a motorcycle you missed a great tour.

 

Participants:

182 Cessna  Jim & Linda Carter

Twin Comanche Carl Bradock, Ken Hughes and guest

182 Cessna  Charlie Rhoads & son Bruce

235 Cherokee Rollie & Marie Bailey, and also Tommy Thompson

Young Eagles Rally Sept. 13th

Newark-Heath Airport (KVTA) September 13th from 9:00AM – 12:00PM

YOUNG EAGLES
Ever wondered what your neighborhood looks like from the sky? Or maybe you’re curious how airplanes even work. You might even dream about being a pilot. If you’re nodding your head “Yes” and are between the ages of 8 and 17, you’re ready to take a free Young Eagles flight and see what real pilots do on the ground and in the air.

YOUR FLIGHT EXPERIENCE
Your Young Eagles flight will last approximately 20 minutes and you will see the earth and sky in a new and exciting way. This is your chance to experience the freedom of flight that many people only dream about.

Many people remember this experience for the rest of their lives. You will, too!

  1. On the ground: Your pilot explains what will happen during the flight. You may talk about the airplane, review an aeronautical chart (or map), and complete a careful “walk-around” preflight inspection of the airplane.
  2. Just before takeoff: Your pilot explains the interior of the airplane, including the operation of the aircraft door, safety belts, and instrument panel.
  3. In the air: The flight lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. And, if you want, your pilot may let you take the controls!
  4. Back on the ground: There’s more time for you to ask questions about the flight. Your pilot is happy to tell you more about flying and their particular airplane.

You also get an official Young Eagles logbook with a personal code to activate your free EAA Student Membership and Sporty’s Learn to Fly Course

Sunday June 1st Fly-out to Put-In-Bay

The weather for departure was perfect, runways (take your pick)! Two aircraft departed Newark on time, one waited for a guest after 9:00 that was a no-show, so we did have extra seats. Both aircraft landed approximately at the same time with fantastic visibility.

Was not crowded at all, real nice to get around the Island. Please take the time to look on line, or in the next newsletter for some great pictures.

Attendees:

Cessna 172 Charlie Rhoads and wife Cathy

Cherokee 235  R. Bailey, Carl Oblinger
