Young Eagles Flights

March 10, 2018 - All the Chapter Young Eagle pilots were unavailable, but Mark Jones from the Enterprise Chapter flew in for the IMC Club meeting and agreed to fly two eager youngsters.

Special Birthday Flights

Two significant birthday flights occurred in March.  The first, on the 20th, was for Bill Castlen’s 81st.  Fellow EAA Chapter 1358 members Larry Turnage and
Chuck Ebbecke went with Bill on a flight to Florala (0J4) for “Flying, Food (barbecue and peanuts), and Fellowship".  

The second flight was with Bill Castlen and George Caldwell, on the 31st.  George turned 91.  George is a WWII, Korea, and Vietnam vet and still sharp as a tack.  George made the takeoff and landing as they flew locally for about an hour including going over his house to wave at his wife, Hilde. Joining us on the flight were
his daughter Dianne and her fiancé Al.
