    We had a great time flying to Asheboro, NC (KHBI) to visit the North Carolina Aviation Museum & Hall of Fame with the Western NC Pilot Association, Spartanburg Pilot Association, both Carolinas and Kitty Hawk Chapters of The Ninety-Nines, and EAA Chapter 731 from Hickory, NC.


    It was even a good practice for crosswind landings :-)

    Interesting article that shows just how easily a minor cockpit distraction can lead to a major oversight by the pilot.

    Great trip from Charlotte to Grand Strand. Had to leave our ride there though:

    VFR over SC

    Room with a view

    Dinner at Flying Fish

    Part owner, partner, navigator, a darling and CAC Secretary

    Cardie staying at CRE for repair (dead mag)


    Thank you Chris for the ride back home.

    St Mary's, GA airport to close this summer. This is 4J6 close to the P-50 area by Kings Bay. I will try to go and land there before it closes down. At least they are planning to build a new one, why didn't they start earlier then :-(

    "American Airlines flight 5320, operated by PSA Airlines, hit a deer upon takeoff from Charlotte Douglas International Airport at approximately 12:15 p.m. It was a CRJ-700 with 44 passengers and 4 crew on board headed to Gulfport, Mississippi (GPT). The airplane came immediately back to the airport and landed safely. There was fuel leaking from the aircraft, so passengers deplaned on the runway and fire trucks did hose the plane down. The passengers have been bused back to the terminal and will get a new aircraft."

    It is with much sadness that we share Bill went west Friday on January 20th at Raleigh Duke Hospital.

    Bill was a member of the CAC for more than 50 years and flying was his passion. He will be missed.


    Our thoughts are with his family.
