When: SATURDAY October 7 at 11:00 to 15:00 hours
What: BARBECUE, Potluck, FLY/DRIVE–In
Who: SWPC members, Guests, General Public, Pilots, Pilot wannabe’s, Student Pilots, and anybody else this doesn’t cover.
WHY: To SEE, SUPPORT, and encourage the rebuilding project of the late Mary Feik’s Piper Pacer (click her name to see more about her on Wikipedia)
She was truly an aviation pioneer. The rebuild is being done by DC teenagers through a program started by Build a Plane. This is integrated as part of their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. These are the SWPC members of tomorrow who will keep our treasures airworthy and flying. They are ably assisted by two of our members and their A&P and IA. Melinda Viteri and Lucy Mencia. They also said contributions to the project are welcome at the event, as well as pot luck food.
If you are flying, you probably already know how to do that. Put W32 into your GPS, and don’t forget to LOOK OUT THE WINDOW.
Drivers, go to 10399 Piscataway Road, Clinton, MD 20735. and use GATE #1
