PPA Update Nov 25

Happy Thanksgiving, Aviators!

 

This past month has been quite a challenge for us aviators, and has given us a few new things to look at.  Hurricane Sandy- while sparing our little airport- has given us a reason to overfly Long Island and the Jersey Shore to see what passed over our airport.  Cold weather is now upon us, and we have to start factoring in preheat time to our preflight.  Daylight savings stole another hour of sunlight from our flying.  On the bright side, POU now has some of the lowest fuel prices around, even beating Barnes (BAF)!

 

With all that out of the way, here are your PPA updates:
-------------------------------------------
We have a new Poll we'd like you to take!  Give us your input on what you'd like to see during the Monthly Meeting here:

-------------------------------------------
Taxiway D work is now complete, and Runway 33 is now open!  Take a test taxi over it and enjoy!
-------------------------------------------
Our PPA Calendar is on order!  We will order around 20 of them, and the final cost should be around $10/calendar.  For details on which photos will be used, and how to get your own, will be at our next Monthly Meeting!  Or you can reply to this email...
-------------------------------------------
There will be one addition to the Monthly Meeting- a short, 5-10 minute informational discussion on something aviation related.  December's topic is Aircraft and Engine Preheating!
-------------------------------------------
Don't forget- our Holiday Party is fast approaching!  Details here:

-------------------------------------------
December 9th we're having our monthly mid-meeting event at Fresco! Chop and Ale House at 3pm.  Friends and family are invited to enjoy fresh Italian and great company!

And finally- If you, or anyone you know has passed a checkride, received an endorsement, recently soloed, or achieved a major milestone in aviation, please let me know by replying to this email!

 

Happy Flying!
