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.

Young Eagles Rally Today! June 14th

Newark-Heath Airport (KVTA) June 14th from 9:00AM – 12:00PM

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 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.

Fly-out Saturday May 17th

Several pilots arrived at the airport early. Dick Purdue departed first only to return saying the ceiling was 900′ ?

Jeff Wheeler also retuned in his bi-wing because of the low ceiling. So we had some hanger talk and went home.

Save the Date – April 17th, 2014

You know a statue of Jerrie Mock will be unveiled at CMH April 17, during an early morning Press Conference. Now I’m asking you to plan to attend an evening gathering to celebrate the anniversary of her return.

Jerrie returned 50 years ago. I am personally asking for your support. Please come to CMH that evening, gather with others in the GA community, and toast the 50th anniversary of fellow pilot Jerrie Mock’s record!

Details will be shared as they’re finalized.
