July 17 - Sunday

 
Another fine morning at the field!
 
There was a soft steady onshore breeze across a freshly cut field and just enough cloud cover to keep the sun "at bay". Two students, Joe and Rick kept the instructor busy all morning flying multiple flights each.
 
Peter Silvano, our budding engineer, had a "bent crank" on his plane ?? and had nothing to fly so I let him fly my "Kadet", since I was busy instructing.  Do I trust him? Of course, I trained him!
 
All who flew got multiple flights but the "Chin" family dominated the "air space". They sure know how to have fun!
 
Well 'till next time, see ya at the field.

Another great evening at the field.
 
Cecil flew his Chipmunk.
 
The two Terrys were there. Chief instructor Terry guided Rick through more training flights, while the younger Terry impressed us with his ever improving flying skills.
 
Others sharing the airspace this evening included Matt, Ian, Tom, Stan, and Brad.

August 14th - Sunday Morning

 
This young fellow (left) and his mom attended COPA for kids on Saturday, and visited us at the field this morning. They watched for a bit and just as they were leaving, Cec grabbed them and let the boy try out his trainer. This pic was snapped when Cecil had him doing a loops! That grin says it all - a future pilot for sure!
 
The were quite a few out on an almost perfect day. Lots of training flights…only one semi-major mishap that we probably don’t need to go into details on...  Mark, Rick, Vanessa, Larry, and Joe all got in a few flights with trainers Terry, Cecil and Craig. JP, Stan, Steve Daly and I also got in several flights, as well as Craig and Cecil on their own planes. Onlookers/bystanders/moral support: Rino, Clarence, and Robert D, as well as a couple of interested members of the public.
 
'till next time,
 
Brad

August 25th - Club Night Thursday

 
Another fine evening, albeit the sun is setting much earlier now. Peter Smith, Terry B, Mark, Rino, Larry, Joe, George, JP, and Vanessa graced us with their presence! Dave, Craig, and I were the "instructors" present. Terry B is a "regular" since he got his drivers licence - Congrats! 
 
Vanessa and Larry got multiple flights in and both are "coming along" just fine in their training!  JP had a "senior's moment" coming out of a "knife edge" and thus got to "Christen our new boat"-- all parts were recovered!

Well it's off to the coffee shop to discuss the evening's adventures!
 
'till next time,see ya at the field!
