FAA Recognizes WNCPA Pilots
On Tuesday, August 19, we were honored to have Mark Kramer, Manager of the FAA Charlotte Flight Standards District Office (FSDO), visit us again to make two special presentations. One was to our very own Cindy Carter, who was named the FAA 2013 FAASTeam Representative of the Year. Click (here) to see Cindy! In addition, Mark Kramer presented the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award to WNCPA member Ken Hawkins. This award was presented to Ken for practicing and promoting safe aircraft flight operations for more than 50 consecutive years! Click (here) to meet Ken. Congratulations both!
WNCPA Flies to Charlotte-Douglas!
On Saturday, August 16, for our August fly-out, five WNCPA planes and 12 folks flew to the Charlotte-Douglas airport to visit the Carolinas Aviation Museum. Upon landing we were transported to lunch at Mr. G's and then to the museum by the great folks at Wilson Air. The weather, however, threw us a bit of a monkey wrench with a stubborn overcast layer at 900 feet over KCLT and diverted several of our planes to KGMU. But judging by their smiling faces in the photo, it wasn't all that bad. Click (here) for all the photos. New photos added as of 8/24.
