It Is That Time Of year
This interesting picture was sent in by our cross-country maintenance officer, Hank Eilts. Be aware that Spring is an active time for wasps and other critters to build nests and generally make a nuisance of themselves. Watch where you put your hands and try to chase the critters out of the airplane before you takeoff!
1) Please remember to fill out your updated membership paperwork and financial agreement. We would like to have them all in this month.
2) The board has approved a change in the cost of instruction from our club CFI's. The new rate will be $40 per hour effective May 1, 2015 (that's a $5 per hour increase). It has been a while since the instructor rate was increased and many flight schools charge higher rates. Our club instructors teach flying because they enjoy passing on this unique skill, but the cost of CFI refresher courses and traveling back and forth to the airport does add up. If you compare rates at other training schools and flight academies, we think you'll still find that our instructors are the most experienced and most affordable around. We wanted to let everyone know about this change a few weeks ahead of the date so that you could plan accordingly.
