interested a flying club?
We introduced the idea at the August 12 Rusty Pilots' seminar, and since such an arrangement can greatly reduce the cost of flying by spreading the initial outlay and ongoing fixed expenses among a group of people, we got a very strong response to the idea (15 pilots expressed their desire to join a flying club at Gnoss). Are you interested, too? Want to learn more? If so, email us at GnossAirport@gmail.com. Be sure to tell us what kind of plane(s) you'd like to have available. *8/17/17 LOTS of interest-standby for more info as we gather data!
september-our own sue royce
Our "guest" speaker for our September 9 breakfast meeting will be our own GFCA Vice-president (and Marin 99s chair) Sue Royce, who this past June participated in the 2017 Air Race Classic. This race, successor to the original 1927 "Powder Puff Derby", covered over 2,500 miles in three days, and was quite an adventure for Sue and her co-pilot, Lisa Johnson. Sue has a very compelling story to tell, so be sure to put this date on your calendar and plan to join us!
