Flying Saturday, May 11
« on: May 09, 2019, 09:19:00 pm »
Weather permitting, I will be at the field this Saturday from about 9:30am -1 pm.  Happy to help any student wishing help or any member needing help with a maiden flight.

I will attempt to maiden two new airplanes (50 size Denight Special, 20 size SuperSportster).

This also lets Andy know how to avoid me or when to come and bug me. ;)

Good idea Frank.  The weather forecast is looking good.  I will be willing to assist students as well.

I will be at the field in the morning, but not likely to arrive until ten-ish.

The weather and wind conditions look good, so far. I'll probably get there about 2 to 3 pm, and stay for a couple hours.

Any students wishing for help, should see Frank or Bruce in the morning!  ;D

Had a great morning flying.  Got there at 9:15 and Mike Brodey and Jim Spence were already flying up a storm.  Then Mark, Moshe, Richard, Bruce, Chris, Ken and Andy showed up.  A fun day.  Everything was prepped for Michael's visit.  I had to leave at 12:30 for two business appointments.

Photos below:

205: Moshe checking in with his intergalactic friends on his communicator.
206: Mark smiling at the successful programming of the DXE
213: Mark giving Bruce a flying lesson. ;)
214: Chris showing off his flying skills.
216: Andy- no idea what he is doing but he is enjoying himself.
217: Richard and Bruce.

Boy! From the looks of it, it appears lots of TEMAC members are getting ready for 'Jets Day' which I was reminded today is coming soon.

It was a great day at the field. I was glad to see that Mark got his new transmitter working and thanks to Chris for the DXe transmitter which connected perfectly with @msatin 's newly programed radio.   One down and one more to go.
