casablancaThis year's annual Hangar Party will be on August 23, 2014. The theme for the party is "Casablance", and Rick's Cafe American will be jumping! Dress up as your favorite character, or as anyone who strikes your fancy. North Africa in the early 40's was full of intrigue and drama; make sure you're a part of it! Mitch, Curtis and Larry will be manning the BBQ, so sign up for a side dish and save the date.

IMG 2556The July 12-15 Fly-In to Gold Beach was another fun weekend for the Del Amo Flyers. With 21 DAFers and 10 planes arriving at three different airports, Gold Beach turned out to have a little something for everyone. We spent one day jetboating up and down the Rogue River (getting soaked) and another day picnicking and visiting two of the many great state parks in Oregon, including a lighthouse. Tu Tu Tun Lodge was a treat for everyone. The grounds were absolutely lovely and the breakfasts and dinners were outstanding. A return trip might be in order someday. Thank you for joining us.

airplanevolcanoThe July dinner meeting was a movie night, with film editor Larry Chapman showing his special "Critic's Cut" of that classic aviation film, "Airplane vs Volcano!" FAA approval for Wings credit will surely be coming soon, as the essential rules of volcano flying were delivered in a clear and cogent form. 

For those who were unable to attend, and need to get this vital information before their next flight to Reykjavic or Krakatoa, contact Larry for more info.

In other news, Maggie Smith was applauded for passing her check ride and becoming the clubs newest pilot!


We had a great turnout for the June dinner meeting featuring Tom Heinsheimer, a pioneer in scientific ballooning.  Tom had some great stories of his experiences with super-pressure balloons, as well as long distance ballooning. His work reviving the Gordon Bennet Balloon Race was of particular interest, as well as his experiences with Malcom Forbes attempting to balloon across the Atlantic. All in all, an exciting evening.


Once again, the Del Amo Flyers returned to Agua Dulce Air Park for the annual Flaming Brisket Fly-in. Mitch smoked 20+ pounds of beef brisket for the occasion, and about 30 DAFers, 14 aircraft and 1 car came to make sure there were no leftovers. The weather was ideal, and this year we had the airport to ourselves. All in all, a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!
