Did you know

Allspice, also known as pimento in Jamaica is the dried fruit of the pimenta dioica plant. Through the dried berries resemble peppercorns, the flavor profile invokes the flavor of warming spices like cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Commonly spotted in Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American cuisines, allspice is a versatile ingredient that has a presence on fine-dining and ethnic independent menus as it’s in the inception stage.

Mothers Day

Is May 10th. Since we are not open on Sunday If you take up your mom or grandma Saturday the 9th we will take $5.00 off a hour on plane rental.

If you need a check ride for anything we have a DP that will come up here.

Now that the weather is warming up the bugs are coming out. Please make sure you put on the Pitot Tube covers.

If  you are a student make sure Debbie has all your paper work. I have a packet that needs to be gone through that shows all I need prior to solo.

We still need some cross country time on N737EC because of a new engine. N42126 is good to go for any flights.
