From Our Chapter President:
Our Chapter reopening in March was a big success. We had excellent participation and turnout for our second Saturday Young Eagles day, our General Meeting with breakfast and lunch on the 3rd Saturday, and a flyout to Borrego Valley Airport by our Chapter members on the 4th Saturday.
We are having a special promotion this month. All new members or existing members who sponsor a new member will receive a gift of a Chapter t-shirt, cap, or coffee mug during Chapter activities this third Saturday of the month. I would like to encourage all existing members who have not yet done so to renew their Chapter membership.
Our Chapter Ray Aviation Scholars have also been very active. Our 2020 Ray scholar, Ryan Flores and our 2021 Ray scholar, Kaitlyn Werner have both completed their private pilot certificates. Ryan Flores and his father Pedro volunteer and help run our Young Eagles day every month, and Kaitlyn Werner managed to complete her Private Pilot certificate while also attending her sophomore year of college. On behalf of our Chapter I want to thank them for participating in the scholarship program, and all their hard work in earning their private pilot's certificates. We are all very proud of them.
In additional Ray Aviation scholarships news, our chapter has received a $10,000 scholarship for 2022. Nominations are open and we need nominations by our Chapter members. Please call or email me if you have someone in mind for a nomination.
Whether you fly, build, restore or simply enjoy airplanes and aviation, you are welcome to attend our events and join our Chapter.
We are a group of aviation enthusiasts, aircraft builders, and pilots who get together with like minded people to share ideas, exchange information, encourage safety, serve the local aviation community and have a lot of fun doing so. Please come to our next meeting or event as our guest.
