Mark FInkelstein in the Terrafugia News

Mark In the News!

Mark Finkelstein is featured in this month's Terrafugia Newsletter. Mark has a deposit on a Terrafugia Aircraft and has traveled to Boston to meet the builders and try the aircraft on for size. Test flights of this innovative design have led to several major modifications that are in the works.

Mark is also our publicity director at the club and passionate about sharing the experience of flying with a wider audience. We still need volunteers to talk about flying at the mall this weekend!












CT-LSA at East HillCT-LSA in Ithaca Mall April 10th

We will be at the Ithaca Mall with our new high tech sport plane on Saturday, April 10th and looking for people to "talk flying" with the shoppers. The Ithaca Journal will be covering this event and it should bring some publicity and new members to our club. Please call or write to help either with the plane moving or at the mall sharing your passion for flight.




Amazing Help; Our CT is on Display in the Terminal!
There is an airplane in the terminal! Wow, great bunch of pilots helping!
Not quite as easy as described but "many hands make light work." Thanks to those that helped move and assemble our light sport in the airline terminal! We had numerous volunteers staffing this display and meeting potential pilots; you guys are great!
Michelle and Joanne in CT CT from above
Wow, check out the new cute CFIs we have teaching in the CT (that is Michelle from Continental and Joanne our member) We successfully returned the aircraft to the hangar Friday night and it should be approved for flight by noon Saturday. Thank-you to everyone that helped; especially the crack disassembly teams! Watch for the mall show April 10th!
Fly for Food! The boys selling flying!
Our plane attracted lots of interest from all kinds of people (even pilots!) Our CT is now safely home in the hangar.



Gettysburg Fly-Out May 8th; Battlefield Orientation April 29th at the Club


Local pilot and club member Mike Brown is passionate about the Civil War and sharing his enthusiasm for this subject. Join us for a fun discussion at the club on Civil War life (with his props including a real flintlock rifle) and the battle of Gettysburg then fly to the actual site on May 8th. Sign up to join our caravan to the battle field and enjoy a guided tour of this park. We are planning lunch at a nearby restaurant then journey home. Planes are already reserved and owner-members are encouraged to join this trip. There is plenty of room for student pilots. Learn history the way it could not be taught in school! The trip is a leisurely 164 miles.



Snowy day in Ithaca

Escape to the Bahamas in a Day!

We had a great Bahamas party to advertise this trip to the Caribbean but no takers! We went anyway with one (great) plane. Brent logged an hour and a half of actual instrument flying in addition to working with 23 different control facilities on the way to Florida! (Start planning for next February!) If you bring your family, you should really stay longer than one day to pay them back for the trip. We turned right around and came home (silly pilots). You can see some pictures here. Chris Camadella has made this trip and will talk about long cross-countries at the club on the 25th; FAA Wings Event

Wow, all in one day and it's lots warmer
Wednesday; snow, 300' overcast All the way to the Bahamas in a day!
