NO open hangar day on July 02

With the 4th of July holiday, the BOD has decided to not have the 1st Saturday, ‘Open Hanger Day’, just in case some of you were anticipating having ‘breakfast and a movie’ with all of our pilot friends… sorry.

There will be a Board of Directors meeting, on July 06, at 18:00 at the Pizza Roundup.
