Annual Member Meeting Saturday Oct 12

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.

Saturday October 12th!!! Be there!

New Commercial Pilot: Lucas Ranieri

I am very excited to announce that Lucas Ranieri is now accepting job offers as Alameda Aero Club’s newest commercial pilot! Lucas made the trip across a very hot Central Valley and into the California foothills for the opportunity to impress DPE Ken Cobb with his fine stick and rudder skills. Congratulations Lucas!

New Commercial Pilot: Timothy Jordan

Timothy Jordan passed the private pilot practical test Tuesday with DPE Rich Batchelder at Concord. I’m told Tim impressed Rich with his command of 4BN; not an easy feat! Congrats Tim, your hard work has paid off.

New Private Pilot: Richard Cziva

Congratulations to Richard Cziva. Her wife gave birth to their beautiful daughter last Monday! Apparently there is no better time to do the final preparations for a checkride. After sleeping 3-4 hours a day, he didn’t really pass the S in IMSAFE, but he did pass his private pilot checkride with Ken Cobbs at O22. It was a relatively cool day at Columbia, the temperature barely exceeded 100 degrees and the density altitude was only a bit above 5000ft. Now time to order a headset for the baby.

New Private Pilot: Zoltan Olah

On a toaster-oven-hot day at KMCC, after he first made sure all his self manufactured C172 checklists were properly attached to the carefully placed velcro tabs on the brow of the instrument panel on 9UL, Zoltan Olah took Richard Conté (DPE) up for a flight. After the usual air work and pattern shenanigans Richard deemed the performance worthy and issued Zoltan his temporary private pilot license.

Congratulations Zoltan!
