Do You Know

Dark chocolate

Chocolate was first seen in bar form around 1910. Dark chocolate is made from the roasted beans of the cacao tree and has many health benefits. From improving bad cholesterol to lowering blood pressure, helping to reduce stress and improving vision, it’s definitely worth eating a square or two a day. A study by Harvard also found that drinking two cups of hot chocolate a day prevented memory decline. Drink up

July Newsletter 2020

 I hope July is going to be a awesome month  for everyone.  We have all endured a bad crappy 3 months. We have the 4th of July coming up. I have found out that Brewster Park is going to shoot off fireworks but you can not go to the  park and watch. You have to watch from your car and can listen to music on FM 106.5 fox radio station.  For Victorville fair grounds  same rules apply. You have to watch from your car. Radio music FM 100.7 No restrooms no vendors. What a different world we live in now.

Did you know

The hottest chili pepper in the world is so hot it could kill you.

The “weapons-grade” Dragons breath chili pepper is so hot it’s downright deadly. If you ate one, it could potentially cause a type of anaphylactic shock, burning the airways and closing them up.  

“I’ve tried it on the tip of my tongue and it just burned and burned” said Mike Smith, the hobby grower who invented the Dragons Breath along with scientists from Nottingham university. So why make such an impractical pepper? As it turns out, the chili was initially developed to be used in medical treatment as an anesthetic that can numb the skin.

Mornings are a better time to fly. Especially for our solo pilots. As in the afternoon it seems like the winds like to kick up.

We have hangers for rent and for sale inquire at Midfield.

We will have a ground school class if I can get enough interest. It would be the 3rd or 4th weekend in July. Friday 6 to 9pm  Sat and  Sun 8 to 5. Please call Debbie at Midfield and let her know if you would like to attend the class.

Per insurance requirement there is No landings on dirt strips or dry lake beds., or any airports less than 3000ft runway.

Deductibles are as follows on planes. $1000.00 on reg planes, on high performance planes and the champ its $2500.00

Make sure you get your belongings out of the planes. Also please clean your up your trash, water bottles, ect out of the planes.

Check notams before flying . They have been doing runway work.

Be sure you put on the pitot covers . The bugs love that area and can plug the hole.

              Summer has arrived

This summer has started to be very hot. Remember to take water when you go flying. Also while you are climbing check your oil temperature. If the aircraft is running hot you should level off for a while and then continue to climb or climb at a higher airspeed to keep temps cooler. Remember these are air cooled engines and when the temp gets over a 100F there is very little effective cooling.

Always keep density altitude in mind!!!

     Santa Clause was given an official pilots’s license in 1927

When Santa Claus makes his trip around the world on Christmas Eve, you can rest assured that he’s legally allowed to drive his sleigh—at least in the United States.
