Happy New Year Short Wingers One and All!
Here is the new Ohio Chapter Newsletter.
This is a link to a special treat: a YouTube video of Paul Gagnon’s Piper Pacer trip from Ontario to Sentimental Journey at Lock Haven last year.
Sorry for the lack of updates in November, but the webmaster (me!) was traveling in a place where there was no Internet and no Short Wing Pipers!
The first quarter 2017 SWPC Newsletter is now available here!
The Georgia SWPC Chapter will be co-hosting its Christmas Party this year with EAA Chapter 468 at Peach State Airpark (GA2) on Saturday December 10, 2016 in the Museum Library.
On a very sad note, we lost a great friend of aviation a few weeks ago. Ron Alexander, who many of you knew, was lost in a crash of his beautiful 1917 JN-4. A war hero in Vietnam with a DFC and two Air Medals, a senior Captain for Delta, a successful entrepreneur (among others, owning Alexander Airplane (which became Aircraft Spruce East) and PolyFiber), and a Director of the Vintage Airplane Association, Ron was a larger than life Aviator. Tailwinds my friend.
The Famous Sky Catch is now back in stock in the On-line Store!
Sadly, we learned of long-time SWPC MemberJim Gardner’s death this week. For information about his life and his Memorial please, click on the President’s Update at the top of the column to your left.
