Feb 7th

Father Jim Sebesta from Parks College will be our guest speaker. Father Sebesta started working at a local FBO in upstate New York at age 14 to earn flying money and soloed on his 16th birthday. Since that day he has accumulated more than 13,000 hours, some of which were as a CFI as well as being a Captain for Frontier Flying Services, a commuter airline in Alaska. When he first went to Alaska he was able to get hold of a J-3 Cub while teaching kids from rural parts of Alaska. He learned to operate D-6 Catipiller and put in an airstrip on the school grounds in his spare time. He has seen quite a bit of Alaska from his old J-3 and the multi-engine commuter aircraft he flew. Not all of his flying was up North. He has also been the Chief Pilot for the Diocese of Nassau in the Bahamas where he provided transportation to the multiple island parishes. He currently teaches a number of courses at Parks College. So if you are interested in flying in Alaska or the Bahamas or have questions about Parks College be sure to join us. Social at 6PM, Dinner ($15) at 7PM, Speaker at 8PM. Reservations are required. Call Ron Hyken at 636 530-7651 before noon Monday, February 5th.

Our 1999 Fly-Out to the Chocolate Festival was a big success and those who went want to go again.
