Congratulations to Christopher LeBailly, our newest instrument pilot!!! Chris
took some time off from work this fall to fly, study, and complete his
instrument rating. Chris dazzled DPE Richard Conte this afternoon by
answering all his questions and then flying 739UL from Sacramento
McClellan Airport to numerous airports hither and yon without ever
looking outside, and then landing safely. He is now “cleared for IFR
Chris was then finally able to discharge his CFI passenger back in Oakland, as said CFI is no longer required.
Job well done Chris!!! Next up??? Maybe a complex endorsement in 747JS??.
Congratulations Clarence Binninger Alameda Aero Club’s newest CFI!!! It was just a little over two years ago that long time private pilot Clarence decided to take a break from his backwoods tailwheel flying and settle down into training for his instrument rating. Fast forward to today and Clarence has snatched the stone from his instructors hand and is ready to share his passion for flying with his very own students, Congratulations Clarence!

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.
