Thanks for all the help from the members and their spouses for making the Young Event on the International Young Eagle Flight Day another great success. We ended up giving 19 Young Eagle Flights and 4 Eagle Flights. We kept busy from 9 AM to about 3 PM with a hot dog lunch for all. Pilots for the event were Kevin DeVan, George Ford, Mark Cattell, Jerry Sorrell, Jim McClellan and Bill Heath. Ground crew personnel were provided by Scott & Michelle Herold, Loren Sievila, Lori Carpenter, Geordy & Zoe Ford, Mary Ann McClellan, Lisa DeVan, Richard Greer, Kelly Quick, Henry Schmitt, Steve Reilly, Judy Sorrell and a few more lending their encouragement.
A thank you also goes out to Dwight Irby for the use of his hanger for his event. And another thank you to Kevin DeVan for making a trip back out on Sunday to take two more Eagle Flights which couldn’t make it to the event on Saturday.
