I wanted to wind up the first day of the New Year of 2005 with a sincere thank-you and congratulations, to all of the Founding Members and Charter Members of the fledgling Beech Aero Club. We are all a part of a unique effort to generate support for our great planes, and to have a lot of fun doing it. We also have the pride of having played the starring role in any organization; getting it started. A similar group started EAA, AOPA, AYA, ABS, etc. I wonder how often those folks think back to the early days of those clubs.
As with any organization (old or new), there have been some bumps in the road as we got things started. We have weathered the teapot tempests and have a solid base on which to build. I’m really looking forward to making more Fly-ins and meeting more fellow members. Again, thank-you one and all!
