President’s Corner:


The New Year finds our chapter in great shape due to the contributions of all of you in 2004.


Our revised and updated web site is now well established as a real means of communication

for all of the chapter’s activities from fly outs to members’ projects.  Fly out schedules are now

available on a calendar with direct  links to the destination airport ‘s significant details and most

importantly where we will eat.


We  can expect  additional improvements as the year progresses for each of us to communicate with each other.

Jim Bonelli, Web Master and our own version of Spiderman, encourages more usage of the

web site and feed back for further improvement of topics to be included.

Keep him busy with project information,  photos and anything of general aviation interest.


You can expect, as the year moves on, to see major improvement in our meeting programs, speakers and subjects. 

The newly drafted Social Director, Dean Herrington, has already reached out to various potential speakers

with positive results, which will be announced in the near future.

Tom Donaldson will also continue to schedule and plan those programs related to our local airport issues.

For starters we have already been in contact with the editor of a major aviation magazine as well as a former

mission commander Astronaut to speak to the chapter. Don’t be shy to send me any suggestions for future meeting topics.


As a reminder it is not to early for each of us to start looking for possible candidates for the chapter to send to the

EAA Air Academy this summer.


On a personal note, I wish each and every chapter member a happy and healthy New Year and look forward

to your participation and continued support of this year’s chapter activities.


Regards and safe flying,


David Lerner, 2005 President
