a couple of hours oral examination, a planned flight to KFAT which
(unsurprisingly) got diverted to F72 and some t&g and air work
shenanigans, Rich Conté decided he had seen enough and deemed Rogier
worthy of the sought after private pilot license.
Our annual membership meeting scheduled this year in a couple of weeks on Saturday, Oct. 12th. Like last year its the Saturday of fleet week. There will be grilling, plane washing and maybe some thrice around if there aren’t any fleet week or baseball related TFRs. There will also be voting on next years board and then the usual prophetic diatribes by our new board.
Last years meeting was a great success with fleet
week, the blue angels flying overhead etc and we hope to have that many
people this year. Despite it being an official meeting, guests are
always welcome to attend.
Like most meetings the plane washing
will fire up around 10:30 with the grill getting hot around noon. Bring
food or drink if you want. We’ll be cooking out but contributions from
our members are always appreciated. Not everyone likes overcooked
burgers and cheap beer.
On 12/14 one rain storm after the next came rolling tru the bay area. Accompanied by strong shifting winds and a healthy dose of turbulence.
However, after a successful search for decent weather, and a couple of flawless landings at KTCY, Mira Tipirneni decided that she could to without the extra weight of an instructor and flew her first solo, three flawless takeoffs and landings on rwy 12.
It was cold standing alone on the tarmac, and I was happy when Mira decided she had had enough and picked me up again to fly us home.
Please join me in congratulating PIC Mira Tipirneni on this great accomplishment!
