Saturday & Sunday - June 1 & 2

 
Saturday morning was a perfect day to fly. It started a little windy, but by 11 AM the flag was limp. We flew for a few hours and then it was off to the coffee shop.
 
Sunday was a different story. The wind was brisk in the early hours and grew more fierce and gusty as time went on. Only the brave flew on Sunday. Pat and George’s gyro stabilized electrics bucked the wind very well. Cecil flew his Tiger 60 well, in the ever changing wind. Many planes were tuned up to fly on better days.   ...Peter

Club Night Thursday - June 6th

 
Our first weather permitting Club Night Thursday is now history and what a turnout we had!
 
Steve Daly, Pat Leonard, Craig Knight, “newly ordained” George Federley and myself were the instructors present - to safely guide students Rick Lortie, Larry Greco and Peter-John Thompson thru their paces.
 
Rick O'Hara graced us with his presence and flew his Top Flite Cessna 310 c/w retracts. Nice job Rick — What a sound!
 
We also had a chance to christen our newly painted rescue boat, as Steve Morin's plane (with Craig on the sticks) lost all signal and crashed a fair distance out in the water. The plane was retrieved with little damage and will fly again.
 
The students got in multiple flights and all the pilots got ample air time.  Ya’ can’t ask for better than that!
 
‘Till next time.
