Club Sponsored Classes There will not be a class this month.
AMA Club 1766
April Meeting Items There were 12 members present at the meeting on the 17th of April. The door for the shelter is still in the planning stages and awaiting the materials delivery to the field. Mowing season is upon us in full so the grass on the runway and in the pits area needs to be cut often (2-3 times per week), so members that can operate the mower are encouraged to mow it when needed. The club now has a mower lift in the garage so the underside of the deck can be cleaned to achieve a better result when mowing. Please don’t use the lift until you have been checked out on it (it is pretty simple but we don’t want someone to get hurt it if isn’t used correctly) and if you do use it please don’t clean the deck in the garage area. We want to keep that free of weeds and grass so move the whole operation to somewhere outside. Remember to latch the head door when you are in it. If you don’t, expect company while you are in there. It isn’t too early to start thinking about the fund raiser in August. We always need members willing to help with donation request, so keep your favorite business in mind when you are ready to ask for their help.
Safety Items Pilots need to be aware of where they stand while flying. Some folks are getting into the runway area. The pilot line is at or behind the extended line of the west pit fence, so please stay in that area while flying. If you need to go onto the runway to place your plane for take off or retrieve it after landing, do so only after letting any other pilots flying know your intentions.

Airplanes are airplanes.

Right?

So it is no surprise that many of our club members have or have had a connection to full scale aviation. Pilots of all ratings, aircraft mechanics, certified flight instructors and aeronautical engineers are some of our member’s aviation related backgrounds. (photo by John Schuy)
