Despite its challenges, 2020 has been an active year so far for the chapter. Checkout our photos for 2020 here.
The Mustang Gets a Little Love
A group of dedicated chapter members have been working to get the Mustang ready for sale. Jeff Paden put together a list of tasks to be accomplished. The goal is to get the aircraft in an airworthy condition, leading up to the sign off of the condition inspection. Jeff was the original builder of the aircraft and obtained the repairman certificate, which allows him to sign off the condition inspection.
Ford Tri-Motor Tour Stop, September, 2019
The Chapter‘s 4th Ford Tri-Motor Tour Stop was another total success. In four days, Pilot John Maxfield flew twenty-nine flights, with 329 passengers joining him. There was an excellent turnout of chapter volunteers from Wednesday morning when Dave Ross ferried the Tri-Motor from Port Clinton Airport to Wayne County Airport through Monday morning when John Maxfield and Debbie Redding flew the Ford back to Oshkosh for maintenance. In-between, Tour Stop Coordinator, Jeff Paden, made sure there were many chapter members pitching in to make this tour stop a pleasure for all our guests. Most of the volunteers were able to get a ride on the aircraft during the weekend. Amanda McGee, Wayne Co. Airport Manager, and Matt Long, Assistant Manager, were a pleasure to work with and were very accommodating while assisting with making our event a success.
