I have not seen this person933CC 18.7 ally, but I’ve read 944CC 46.8 that some airlines are 33.0 editorializing to their 955CC customers about how Top Flyers for August: the GA flyer is the Larry Kirchner 8.1 problem with respect Greg Hamilton 4.4 to delays and ATC Marty Lorenz 4.2 problems. If I see that I intend to react vigorously by contacting that airline. The good news is that a compromise has been reached in the form of H.R. 2881, “The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2007”, which the AOPA supports. In that regard, AOPA will be looking for our support when the bill and its Senate counterpart are argued out. Please don’t assume someone else is watching out for you – Mr/Ms GA pilot – in this critical dispute. Get educated and lend a hand when asked. On a more upbeat note, the annual BaAircraft hours:

N933CC is back on-line following the replacement of its interior. It is really sharp! As always my request to you is to care for our aircraft as if they were you own. We’re very proud of our fleet and with everyone’s help they will they will retain those good looks. Finally, you will soon be asked to participate in a member survey regarding the Club’s aircraft. This Board is very interested in your views of how to take the Club forward with respect to the number and type of aircraft. So….help us out here. Review the survey, give it some thought and return it promptly. Fly safe, and I’ll see you at Page Field. Terry

Taking Over Our Cub Club Flyer
by Sherrie Lorenz

I have recently been entrusted with the privilege of taking over as Editor and Publisher of our Cub Club Flyer Newsletter. I am very honored and excited to accept this project. I want to thank Dennis Howard for all of his efforts in bringing this Flyer out of the “dark ages” and up to the level it is today. So I have some very big shoes to fill to keep the momentum going! I will certainly do my best to keep our Club well informed and sharing the fun flying stories of our members. Our planes go to all kinds of interesting places, and I look forward to sharing stories and photos THANKS, and flying tips with you all through these pages! and Anything you would like to see published in the Flyer? HAPPY FLYING!

Board Meeting Minutes

— Synopsis, August, 2007

The board of directors met on August 15, 2007 at 7PM. This is a synopsis of the business discussed at that meeting. Treasurer: profit and loss by airplane was reviewed, and club is close to break even point with each airplane. Bulk purchase of fuel is saving the club approximately $900 per year. Maintenance: 933CC is having the interior replaced and touch-up paint work done. 955CC will have the exhaust stack replaced. 944CC had the autopilot inspection plate replaced. The written squawk forms are no longer being used; contact Charlie Carrol by phone to report any aircraft maintenance problems. Activities: the Venice flyout has been postponed until September. A Bahamas flyout was proposed for November. The July 21 picnic was well-catered, and expenses within budget. Membership: club presently has 137 members. Recruiting will continue with a static display on Page Field Aviation Days. Office Renovation: budget and plan will be presented next month with work to be completed in October.

Aircraft Acquisition: survey will be sent to membership electronically to survey members’ flying experience and determine what type of aircraft to propose for purchase if a buying a fourth aircraft is found to be beneficial for the club. Dennis Howard submitted his resignation effective August 31 and Eric Graham was appointed to serve out the remaining 15 months of his term. The next board meeting will be held on September 19, 2007 at 7PM. Interested members are encouraged to attend
