from On Final March 2005

On Feb 19th, we flew 12 students from Peter Denny’s “Sonex Technicians” class at Washburn HS. Pilots were Don Eide, Gary Rosch, Pat Halligan, Dan Carroll, and Norm Tesmar. Jeff Coffey, Bill Brown, Mike Dolan and myself served as ground crew. Bill Brown demonstrated his Sonex by doing takeoffs, low passes, and by flying alongside Don Eide so the kids could see a Sonex in flight.

I took about a half dozen of the students to our hangar so they could see the finished Sonex airplanes built and owned by Jeff and myself. Several parents also went along. The students were most appreciative, as were their parents.

On Mar 5th, Pat Halligan flew 5 more young eagles in conjunction with the annual chili feed.

Our next young eagle events are planned for Mar 19th and Apr 16th, when a scout group is planned. If you would like to volunteer, please contact myself or Jeff Coffey.
