PPA Weekly Update and 2013 Farewell

From: Andy Z.

Happy New Year to all Aviators out there!

We're on the verge of 2013, and thankfully so!  The PPA Leadership hopes that Santa brought all you pilots out there all the aviation toys we know you deserve, and we wish you many happy and safe flights in 2013!

Speaking of 2013, check out our Message Board and post your 2013 Aviation Resolution.  Have a goal you'd like to pursue in 2013?  Let us know and read up on what others think!

Our Annual Holiday Party is just around the corner and coming up fast!  Come hang out with fellow local aviators for a relaxing night of 2012 lies and fables!  WE NEED TO HAVE ALL RSVPs AND PAYMENTS BY JANUARY 4th!  If we can't guarantee enough people, the Holiday Party will have to be scrapped!  PLEASE visit the meetup page via the link below and RSVP either way you decide.  You can even send the payment through the Meetup page via PayPal if you'd like!

Are you planning on taking a flight for breakfast or a museum and want to invite others to join in?  Now you can Suggest a Meetup for the rest of the group!  It's simple- just set a date and time, pick a location, add a few lines for a description, and you're off!  We've already got several Suggested Meetups on the calendar, check them out!  You can reply to this email for more information, or read up on Suggesting a Meetup here:

One Suggested Meetup involves local breakfast on New Year's Day, and it has a few interested people already!  Check it out here:

January 20th the PPA is having a fly-out to Bradley International (BDL) for Open Cockpit Day at the New England Air Museum!  This is a fantastic museum, and is great for kids and adults alike!

We have some sad news to report about our airport.  Richmor Aviation will be leaving Dutchess County Airport and consolidating their operations at the Kingston-Ulster Airport as of January 1st.  Their 141 Flight School programs will be available at that location, as well as their other 3 locations in New York.  This leaves United Aviation Academy as the sole Flight Training center at KPOU.  Personally, I will miss seeing all the Richmor planes I've instructed in coming and going constantly.

Our Jan 17th Monthly Meeting has been shifted back one day, to be incorporated into the Annual Holiday Party.  So change your monthly Thursday plans to Friday and we'll see you at the party!  Don't forget to RSVP and send in your payment by January 4th!

I'd like to say a personal thanks to the membership for the great turnout at our December Monthly Meeting.  30+ people attended, and were treated to a great PowerPoint on Engine Preheating.  Every month we will provide you with a similar subject topic to inform, enlighten, and further your enjoyment of aviation!  The Engine Preheating PowerPoint can be downloaded and viewed from our "Files" section under the "More" tab.

We also SOLD OUT of our 2013 Calendars!  Mark Dunn ordered 25 calendars, which sold out in under 5 minutes at $10 apiece!  We are considering placing another order, so if you'd like a calendar, reply to this email and let us know how many you'd like!  The calendar was created using 13 photos selected from 89 photos submitted by local pilots like yourself!  We need a minimum of 10 calendars to place an order. 

The 2014 PPA Calendar Photo contest is now open!  It's easy- take a photo of something aviation related and upload it to our "2014 Calendar- Submit Photos Here!"  Photo Album on the PPA website.  In November, we'll select 13 photos to be included in a CUSTOM PPA CALENDAR and sell them at our December General Meeting!


Check us out on Facebook!!/



Happy New Year, and safe travels!

President, PPA

Don't forget to RSVP for our Holiday Party!  I can't wait to see you all there!
