    Earlier in February 2015 during our planning session, J. Grant Beatty the President of the Aero Club​ at the Eastern North Carolina University and Carolina Aero Club Board Member discussed the opportunity to have a fly-in at the Pitt-Greenville airport.

    Working with Christophe Masiero, VP of CAC at the time, Grant scheduled a fun event to allow his fellow students to discover the joy of general aviation. The weather was perfect for conducting introduction flights. Grant's father came with his Mooney Ovation while Christophe flew from the Charlotte area with his Cardinal RG and both ran several introduction flights.

    The smiles on the ECU students' faces may come from the BBQ or the flights, perhaps both. See the pictures in our Photo section.

    VAA/EAA Chapter 3 Prez Suzan Dusenbury has informed as of mid-day Friday 10/2/15 that we are still on for CDN.  As we post this, Chapter and CAC members have convened at MB Huggins Memorial/Timmonsville Airport and are riding to "beautiful" downtown Florence for a fine lunch.  Inexpensive dinner will be back in Camden tonight, with ample hangar flying time Fri and Sat to catch up with old and make new friends. 

    Rain is currently forecast for Sat. and Sun. However, even if all you have time for is the Saturday PM VAA Banquet at the Robert Mills-designed old Kershaw Co. Courthouse with speaker aviator extraordinaire Bruce Brown (only $25) or the SCBC (Breakfast Club) Sunday morning (usually $10) to enjoy the camaraderie of dozens of the faithful (along with the occasionally-fanciful but always entertaining comments of the Jimmy Fallon of SC aviation, Gerald Ballard), please get on your pony and COME ON!

    CAC is at CDN with our table, banner and new info/business cards, so come help us meet a couple new members and broaden your own aviation horizons.  If questions, pls contact Chris at (704)975-5165.

    The Hickory Airport, owned and operated by the city of Hickory welcomed these lady flyers. The Hickory Airport has a reputation of being an excellent airport with extremely competent and friendly staff.

    June 22nd Monday morning 9:30: Hickory Airport: 56 aircraft in the
    Air Race Classic will land to refuel before continuing the 2,200 mile all
    women’s air race. Public welcome to view this free event.


    Hickory is Honored
    The All Women’s Air Race Classic to Land Here for
    Fuel On Monday June 22, 2015 
    In 1929, ninety nine women pilots gathered to form an organization for the
    purpose of supporting women that were flying or wanted to learn to fly. 
    They called their organization The Ninety Nines.  That same year they had
    their first Powder Puff Derby racing from Santa Monica to Cleveland.  
    The  first president of the Ninety Nines was Amelia Earhart who later was
    the first woman to fly Solo across the Atlantic to Europe in 1932. 
    The Ninety Nines have now grown to over 5.000 members from countries
    around the world.
    This year’s Air Race Classic will start in Fredericksburg, Virginia. The
    airplanes will take off one after another beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, June
    22. They’ll fly to Morganton NC, do a high-speed, low approach (offset to
    the side of the runway) across a designated timing line to stop their time for
    that leg, then continue on to Hickory to land and get fuel. 
    Depending on the weather, the first racers should arrive in Hickory around
    9:30 AM. Some teams will stay for awhile and others will take off
    immediately, fly back to Morganton to do another flyby to restart their time,
    then continue on to the next stop in Conellsville, PA


    After four days the race will end in Fairhope, Alabama covering 2,200
    miles. The race is limited to 55 aircraft, two women or more per aircraft.
    The race must be conducted by visual means only in the day light hours and 
    the racers are not allowed to fly in the clouds during the race. 


    This year’s Air Race Classic will have three contestants from North
    Carolina. Stephanie Wrenn who teaches flying at Flightgest in Raleigh
    Durham says that she still remembers the first time she ever experienced
    that true feeling of freedom that only flying can give you. She said flying
    has given her the confidence and joy she never knew she had. Stephanie is
    an Amelia Earhart Memorial Scholarship winner helping to pay for her
    Multi Engine Rating. Stephanie is the co- secretary of the Kitty Hawk
    Chapter of the 99’s this year.


    Jan Squillace started flying after having a forty year career in the computer
    industry and being a designer of financial systems. She  a Technical Support
    Consultant and now that her children have finished high school, she has
    thrown herself into her passion of aviation. She was the first female
    president of the 52 year old Wings of Carolina Flying Club in Sanford NC,
    she is the FAAST Team Representative teaching safety to the aviation
    community, among many other volunteer aviation endeavors.


    Corbi Bullock who flies the governor of North Carolina, was the first
    female pilot to be hired by the NC Department of Transportation. Corbi is a
    member of the International Board of Directors for the for the 99s, has 
    served as president of the Kitty Hawk Chapter of the 99’s. This year is her
    first time to race in the Air Race Classic. She and Jan Squillace will be
    flying Corbi’s Piper Dakota.


    The Hickory Airport, owned and operated by the city of Hickory welcomes
    these lady flyers. The Hickory Airport has a reputation of being and
    excellent  airport with extremely competent and friendly staff. 


    The public is welcome to come to the airport to watch the arrival and
    departure of the race teams.
