After a few months of debate, the club membership has decided to eliminate “half” memberships, which were intended for students. The reason primarily is that students wanted to be able to fly more than the limited membership allowed. As of July 1st, all members will pay $110 per month in dues. Aircraft rates will remain the same for now (fuel is going up so there may need to be an increase). All members will enjoy the same privileges, whether student or licensed member.
Congratulations to our most recent certificated Private Pilot club member, Jennifer Fleischer! She passed her check ride today.
The weather is warm enough we’re moving our regular meetings to the hangar at the airport until fall. Our last cookout featured food from Big Fatty’s BBQ in White River Junction. Very happy pilots!
With better weather and longer days coming, we’ve posted an updated list of nearby airport restaurants. http://www.uvflyingclub.org/airport-restaurants/
We’re having our winter meetings at Salt Hill Pub in Lebanon (the one on the green). If you’re interested in joining us, let us know through the contact page and we’ll get details to you. We need to know roughly how many people are attending so we can let the pub set up for us.
Happy 2018! The club is happily in great shape with a healthy membership. As of December, we have established a wait list for student applicants. To get on the wait list, you will need to fill out the application form with application fee. We are still accepting licensed pilots, with preference for those interested in flying our 182RG.
Our next regular meeting in September (Thursday, Sept 21, 6pm) is a special Annual Meeting. We will be electing officers, reviewing our financial state, looking at our scheduling policies, as well as any other business that needs discussing. We will hold the meeting at the hangar with our final cookout of the year.
Congratulations to members Sam Lutz and Chessie Newbold who are attending Embry Riddle University this fall, and Misha Turnbull who is attending University of North Dakota. All received their private certificates and beyond in the club. Best of luck to you three in your aeronautical education!
