Bob Boyd Sends His Thanks to EAA Members

Please thank members of EAA who sent letters to me on my Honor Flight. “Mail Call” on the return Southwest flight was among the many surprises we experienced.  JoAnn did a fantastic job of notifying friends –  and it took a long time read all the notes which I did back home as there were too many to read on the plane with other many distractions, like our WW2 bugler sounding off, snacks and a former police judge leading singing “God Bless America ” including the pre-amble that Kate Smith originally sang!  There were 28 Veterans and 32 guardians and volunteer support personnel on the trip, all from Arizona.  We took all the front seats and all the other passengers going D.C. & back had to sit in the back and join in or ignore us.  I saw 3 memorials I had never seen: FDR Park, Women in the Military, and the Air Force Memorials

Airport Courtesy Cars

The Airport Courtesy Cars app has been around for a while, but developer Glenn Brasch recently announced that mid-December the site will be completely web-based. According to Brasch, this will eliminate many of the issues encountered by some users of the Android and IOS apps.

In addition to listing the availability of airport courtesy cars by state, the site also lists FBOs that offer fuel discounts for mentioning the website.

Monthly Meeting Day Change

At its October meeting, the membership of the Chapter overwhelmingly voted to move the Chapter Get-Together days to the second Saturday of the month. The change was suggested to hold our get-togethers on the afternoon of the same day as the Mogollon Airpark HOA Board meets so that those who are not full-time residents and serve on the board or wish to attend board meetings do not have to make two trips to the airpark every month.

Meetings will continue to start at 3:30 (3:00 for social and coffee) and be held at the Randoll hangar.
