Topic is “Aircraft Performance:  Theory or Reality?”  The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee has studied a number of accidents that were caused by inaccurate and/or unreasonable expectations regarding aircraft performance. This program is a short review of expected performance in the take-off and departure phases of flight. This seminar will be held in the conference room. Registration is required and can be done at:  www.faasafety.gov.  Questions – contact Dennis Miller, 574-999-0483.

Friday Lunch on the Fly

What’s better than food and airplanes? Maybe lots of food and lots of airplanes? From April to October every year, join us on the 4th Friday of the month between 11 am and 1 pm (Central).  In 2019, we averaged 85 people and 18 planes each week! There’s no cost, but a $5 donation is appreciated. Check back in 2020 – and get a Lunch on the Fly schedule. Every week there’s an airport in the Northern Indiana area that hosts a Lunch on the Fly.

Summer Aviation Camp 2019

Camp was held June 10 – 14 for 72 students in grades 6th – 12th. One of the highlights was flying a full-motion simulator, built by our own Ron Bober. A new activity for camp was our first ever “Aviation Escape Room” which tested the student’s memory of what they’d learned during the week. And as always, the flight, provided by local pilots was deemed a highlight for nearly everyone. Dates for 2020 camp have not yet been set, but if you’d like information as soon as it’s ready, email diane@laporteairport.com
