It was nice to see everyone at the meeting June 28th. Attendance was very good. Maybe we should always move our June meeting back one week to miss Father’s Day. Even with hangar door wide open and people widely spaced it still got pretty hot inside, oh well. Maybe fans next time. I was particularly pleased to see so many visitors. I think all said they found us through the internet. Obviously our good web site (thanks Rick) is working.
If you are building or thinking about building an airplane make sure you come to Scott’s open house July 19th. This is a great opportunity to see “how it gets done”. Scott and other builders will be there to answer questions.
We were introduced to our Ray Scholar, Bryce Wiekrykas. He is about half way through his Private Pilot Training. He will be at our meetings and helping at Chapter events. Please be sure to introduce yourself and ask him how it is going. If you have a plane offer a ride sometime when appropriate given our Covid 19 situation. It would be good to get him as much experience in other aircraft as possible.
MMK Hangars and Construction
Hangar construction continues. The entrance to the T hangars is now paved which makes moving the planes much easier. The Mid ramp hangars are close to completion. Occupancy should start in August. The box hangar row is impressive at 450 ft long. The picture is of the back side. I think it needs a big airplane mural! They are in the process of covering the doors now.
