BFR AND CHECKOUT ARE COMPLETE, NOW WHAT?

BFR AND CHECKOUT ARE COMPLETE, NOW WHAT?

I have not had the opportunity to do a whole lot of flying over the past year or so because of the new job I took at Lighting & Production Equipment in Atlanta. This has certainly taken a tremendous amount of my time and energy. I am, however, now using my college degree, which is Television Production. I’m making pretty good money, for a change, and I am having a lot of fun at […]

Too young or Too old?

This week I have been at the hospital with my ageing father
whom is having a rough time with his health. I was called very early now 5 days
ago and had to rush to his bed side. I am very pleased however to be able to
announce that today his condition is improving rather quickly. As I and some
other family members sat, waiting for results we could not help but noticed how
young most all of the medical staff appeared to be. I’m […]

Porsche Aircraft Experience

WOW! What a day it was at the Porsche Aircraft Experience this year at Peachtree Dekalb Airport (KPDK) in Atlanta, GA. I was there with the Super Hawk as a static display.

EAA chapter 976 in Carrollton, GA

EAA Chapter 976 was formed in the latter part of 1990, but the idea went back a little before that time. You see, Al Fowler taught a Sunday School Class in Douglasville and guess who happened to be in that class. That’s right, Tom Howard, Hal Coonley and Don Bowlick. They say that the Chapter was not planned in that class, but no one really believes them. It was in that class along with several flying trips that EAA Chapter […]
