JOYCE
PRESIDENT,
VINTAGE AIRCRAFT ASSOCIATION
April is here, and almost everyone has gotten out their
dust
rags
and
polish
to
get their
birds
up to
speed
and
ready for the flying season. I
don't
want to sound like a broken record, but permit me to once again say, "
Let's
be careful out there!" We need to be very cautious at all times, but the during the flight hours right after a long layoff, you should take extra care.
It
seems that the ground
is
involved with about 95%
of
the accident reports I see. You know the old say ing,
It
isn't the speed that kills, but it is the sudden stop at the end." Keep thinking about it -you will live longer.
There
will be a
great many
of
you at Sun
'n
Fun
this
year
,
and
so will
I
It's
remarkable how
this fly-in has grown over the past two and a
half
decades to become an internationally recognized gathering
of
aviation individuals.
It
is
a direct result
of
the dedication and great leadership
of
the management team, Officers, Directors, and Volunteers, past and present, that have made this success possible. I have heard some
people
talk
about
the location
of
a fly-in from time to time. In my humble opinion, that is
of
a lesser concern,
except
from a weather standpoint. We can use our aircraft to go to almost any locality with ease.
Think about
it -
who would have
ever thought
that
a
town
in
mid-eastern Wisconsin would
be
visited
by so many,
just
to look at an airplane
or
two? Congratulations to the Sun
'n
Fun
EAA
Fly-In on your 25th anniversary. May you continue to be successful
in
the years to come! Here are
some
of
the
things
you can look
forward
to during
your
visit at the 25th
Sun
'n
Fun EAA Fly-In at
Lakeland, FL: The Seaplane Splash-In on Thursday, not Friday as
in
years past. 451
Antique, Classic
and
Contemporary aircraft
parked in the Vintage Aircraft area last
year
-will yours be one
of
them this year?
Check
the forums
schedule,
too -
how about Henry Holden's The
Fabulous Ford
Trimotor
(Sunday, I p.m., Tent 8)
or
Robert
Czego's
"Bellanca-Champion
Club
Forum (Sunday at
11
a.m .,
Tent
7).
There's
plenty more to take
in
Check your program when you arrive and register. Be sure and visit with the folks at the Vintage Aircraft Headquarters building, located in the northeast corner
of
the Vintage Aircraft area. This building, complete with a
great
front porch, is hosted by
Chapter
I
of
the
Vintage
Aircraft Association. During the balance
of
the year this building is
home
base for the Chapter.
During
the fly-in you can relax there, drink some lemonade
or
iced tea and munch on some popcorn.
It's
also the place to go to regis
ter your
aircraft.
These
folks also
are
a
great source
for
information about almost anything
you need
to
know about
the fly-in.
Just writing about
Sun
'n
Fun gets me more excited about going to the fly-in for the week! I hope to see you there as well.
It
was with
great
interest that I read this past month s article written by Buck. I can relate to his experience with a computer, but
don't
count him out because it
won't
be a year before he will be putting floats on his one-eyed box! Hang
in
there, Buck.
After
Sun
' n
Fun
almost everyone
will be
enjoying
quite a few local fly-ins. Some
of
the type clubs will also be holding their fly-ins at different locations in different
areas
of
the U. S.
You
can
check
the
dates
for
many
of
these activities
by
reviewing
the
Calendar
section
of
your Vintage Airplane. Joe Dickey, Vintage Aircraft Association Director and Type Club Chairman for your area, has written to inform me that he is stepping down as a Director and also is giv ing up the Chairmanship
of
the Type Club Headquarters.
If
Joe was there
to
help you,
you'll
also recall that
his
wife
,
Julia, was right there too
.
They make
a
powerful team and
I
never
had
to
worry about
any
project
they agreed
to complete!
It
would
be
completed
on time and with a high quality level.
The
type club headquarters located
just
to the south
of
the V AA Red Barn on the
EAA
AirVenture grounds is one
of
the more important areas
of
service to your membership that we offer, and they helped bring
it
up to the next level
of
participation and organiza
tion. On
behalf
of
the
membership
and the
Officers,
Directors, and Advisors
of
the VAA,
I'd
like to say: "Joe and Julia, thank you for giving your time and talents to be
of
service to the membership. You have been a great help to me personally, and I
thank
you for that time and friendship. Best wishes
in
your future endeavors!" Ask your friends to
join
up with the Vintage Airplane
Association.
Let's
all pull in the
same
direction
for the good
of
aviation. Remember we are better together. Join us and have
it
all! .......
