New Private Pilot: Rogier Carper

Rogier Carper had his first flight lesson on May 27, solo-ed on July 17 and passed his check ride on October 30th in N734BN.

After 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.

Congratulations Rogier!

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.
