We still have our build nights on Mondays so if you think you might want to build your own or just want to see what it is like to build a plane come on out.  You can contact our officers for details.

Have some ideas on topics you would like to see presented at our meetings or do you have a topic you would like to present?  Let us know here

Tip of the month

You have probably heard about the latest on the BasicMed, it is a big deal for many pilots that will reduce paperwork and cost.  You can fly an airplane with up to 5 passengers, below 18,000, less than 250KT, IFR or VFR and do it with a check list from your personal doctor and an online class.  Check the details on the AOPA website.
