New Aviation Event - Dinner with slice of history - Around the world with Jerrie Mock, Cleveland, OH - Friday, May 8, 2015
May 8 – Dinner with a Slice of History – Around the World with Jerrie Mock. Presented by Wendy Hollinger 6:30 pm. Ohio native Jerrie Mock 1925-2014 was the first woman to fly solo around the world. She made the flight in 1964 in an 11 year old Cessna 180 which is now hanging in the Smithsonian’s Udvar-Hazy Center. Jerrie was a 38 year old housewife with only a Private Pilot's license, and less than 700 flying hours. She flew into countries where, even today, women are not allowed to drive. She landed at a secret military base, dealt with severe icing and flew through sandstorms. But she completed over 23, 200 miles in 29 days, 11 hours, and 59 minutes, and was awarded an FAA medal by President Lyndon Johnson. Jerrie’s book, Three-Eight Charlie, has been out of print for many years. Wendy Hollinger and Dale Ratcliff volunteered to publish a new edition for the 50th anniversary of her flight, and met with Jerrie and reviewed her memorabilia. They spent hours interviewing her and photographing her materials, and became passionate about sharing her story. Please join us for this incredible story. Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm with the presentation to follow. Tickets are $15 non-members, $13 members. Please RSVP soon- seats are limited!

Pilot Destination Update - Lancaster Airport, Lancaster, PA
"Lancaster Airport also is within one mile of an IMAX theater. Google Penn Cinema to see what's playing. The wife and I flew in for dinner at the Flight Deck Resteraunt at the airport then took a cab to see American Sniper in the IMAX theater, what an experience! Are home airport is inside of the Washing DC SFRA, so, a word of caution. DO NO USE YELLOW CAB IF YOU HAVE TO FILE A TIME SENSITIVE FLIGHT PLAN. We had much better luck with Lancaster City Cab 717-701-1151. KLNS is a great destination for dinner and a movie." - Submitted by HERB.

Featured Fun Place to FLY! Sunset Pub and Grill- Lincoln Park Airport, Lincoln Park, NJ
"Excellent restaurant and ambiance with live music almost every weekend. Eat indoors or eat 50 feet away from the runway outside. If you're flying in, runway 19/1 will make you earn your meal with 2900 feet 2400 usable and winds that are always challenging. The food is AMAZING and so is the atmosphere and the airport. Visiting is a must!" - Submitted by Tanner Lauchnor.
