Regarding our heli fun fly for 2015…
Greetings fellow heli pilots!

It has come with deep regret that our heli fun flys are no more, well for next year anyways. I've been forced to change the dates several times to accommodate the plankers…yet again. After much negotiating with our current president and board members, a date was finally set…well so I thought! I received this email early this morning from our president stating the last heli fun fly date was canceled due to having another nearby club wanting to have their fun fly at our field. I guess plankers out rank/are more important than heli's…

Hey Ray. I hear ya about work hours.

Anyway, on the preliminary schedule for 2015, we had you down for the Heli Fly on July 11, 2015. I have spoken with our president-Elect, and with coordination of events we are attempting with surrounding clubs, and that the Freeport Club wants to use our field for their Midwest Roundup Fly instead of going all the way to Mt. Morris. On July 11, Barcus has decided that the Heli Fly is cancelled.

Edward, President - for afew days yet!!!

I would like to thank those that have attended our fun fly's in the past. I'm not sure what the new president and board have in mind for the future of heli's at "their" field, I guess I'll find out in time.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

That sucks!!!!! Find a field and get a charter. Create a Helicopter only club. Ask your local officials about under-utilized fields in your area and decide which ones are suitable and negotiate from there. This is how we acquired the Seaview Rotary Wings club field in NYC. All Heli's all the time.
