Why did you join this group?

Meeting other aviation minded people. Always interested in comparing notes on instructors and IA mechanics.

Tell us an airport/restaurant you would love for us to fly in to.

I love flying to the Furnace Creek Inn at Death Valley. Also nice are Paso Robles, Oceano, or San Luis ObispoI'd also be interested in flying as a group for 2 or 3 night destinations like Catalina, Sedona, AZ or the Grand Canyon.

What aircraft do you fly?

1977 Mooney M20C

What led you to abandon logic and income to be a part of aviation?

An uncle who was a private pilot/ A/C mechanic when I was a kid.

What is your favorite flying memory?

An exceptionally beautiful sunset while on a bay tour.


I've been flying for 36 years. Mooney owner for 12 years. Looking for fun new people to meet for flyins.

What Duane is saying about this Meetup Group

I like the camaraderie and the sense of belonging to a group of like minded people that "get it" when it comes to flying and who share the same passion for flying that I do but who can never get the same love of flying feedback that you get when trying to relate your experiences to non-fliers. It's also nice that non-pilots are attracted to this group and I'd love to be able to offer a spare seat to them when we have flyins.
