    Landing Gear Cushions

    Mike,

    How many sets do they have in inventory. Maybe BAC can buy some sets
    and get a better return on our cash reserves than we are getting now.

    If there is a reasonable discount, the club could still give their
    members a good deal and get a reasonable return in the process.

    Landing Gear Cushions

    This sounds like a very good idea. Keep them for BAC if possible.

    Landing Gear Cushions

    I am/was? waiting until after tax time and hopefully enough left to purchase
    then, just rebuilt engine and recovering from that budget buster. but I
    also, wouldn't have any problems with making a contribution to BAC for
    purchasing doughnuts and parts for when members need them. this club has
    done a great job of keeping me flying for short money on the dues.
