He has an ATP rating for single and multi-engine airplane as well as helicopters.
Please, please call Mark Weber before April 3rd at 636-458-2529 or Email RSVP@MoPilots.US so that we can give an accurate count to the Greenbriar County Club (12665 Big Bend Blvd, Kirkwood just west of I-270) which has reopened after extensive renovations. Social at 1800; Dinner at 1900; Speaker at 2000.
We apologize for the lateness in the last few newsletters which took several weeks to be delivered. We have complained to the Post Office who began a new sorting system for bulk mailings like ours. We hope the system is now running without the recent problems in delivering our newsletter.
Sunday April 2nd
Let's hope that the weather cooperates so we can finally Fly-Out to Sikeston (SIK) for Lunch at Lambert's "Home of the Throwed Rolls". If you have never been to Lambert's you are in for a treat - its fun and the food is good. The owners love pilots and enjoy picking them up at the airport for a short ride to the restaurant where they sneak us in via the side door so we don't have to wait in line outside. Plan to arrive at SIK at 1145. If you will be joining us call Sue Smith at 636-274-3663 or email her at Sue@MoPilots.US.
