The love of flying sometimes makes us lose sight of the fact that we are in the risk management business and things like runway incursion, collision avoidance, fuel management, weather, airspace, TFR's, checklists, seem sometimes to be pushed to the back of our minds. It's up to all of us as GOOD PILOTS to remember our responsibility to make each flight as SAFE as possible for ourselves, our family, and the flying community. FLY SAFE...HAVE FUN from Rick & Gen.

The NEW LOGO hats and decals are available. They will be on the table at the dinner August 9th.

USPA fly-out to BRANSON is August 24th. to 27th. Lots to do and see. For more information call Arnold Zimmerman at (314-843-2766)
