Potential B-25J Rides $400 at May 2015 E16 Open House
Written by Mike Brogley   
Thursday, 16 October 2014

A Message from Dan Petroff of the Wings of History Museum:

Looking ahead to the May 2015 E16 Open House event, Wings of History has an opportunity to bring the B-25J "Executive Sweet" up for the open house and sell rides. To do this Wings of History needs to guarantee 10 paid slots at $400 per ride. The money would not be due until later, so if anyone feels like reserving a ride in a fabulous 1945 B-25J medium bomber next May at the E16 Open House, please contact Dan at the Wings of History office at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , phone (408) 683-2290

SCAPA 2014 Holiday Party
Written by Mike Brogley   
Thursday, 16 October 2014

Save the Date! TheSouth County Airport Pilots Association Annual Holiday Party on Saturday, December 13th 2014. This year the party will be held at the spectacular historic Villa Mira Monte, located at 17860 Monterey Road, Morgan Hill, CA 95037.

Villa Mira Monte was completed by Hiram Morgan Hill in 1886 as a country getaway from the hustle and bustle of their home in turn of the century San Francisco, and their visits led to the modern town's name, as train conductors would announce "Morgan Hill's" when making special stops for the family and their guests.

Our Holiday Party is once again a pot luck, so to help us plan please RSVP via Meetup and let us know what dish you are planning on bringing.

See you there!!

DART Awarded Grants!
Written by Mike Brogley   
Sunday, 12 October 2014

In September, we had two rounds of great news relating to DART:

On September 16th SCAPA board member and Disaster Airlift Respose Team (DART) co-chairman Rod Pharis was informed that our DART program has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the AOPA Foundation Giving Back Program.

Then on September 24th Rod receved a phone call from his employer, Northrop Grumman Corporation, informing him that he had been selected to receive $5,000 from the Good Citizenship Grant Award program for his (and SCAPA's) participation in this community service project.

Both Rod and DART co-chairman Paul Marshall have been working diligently on obtaining various grants through different avenues over the past few years, and their efforts have finally paid off. The funds are earmarked for DART supplies and equipment lists that they've assembled over the past several years of grant applications to make our Disaster Airlift Response Team a viable entity.

Congratulations to Rod, Paul and the SCAPA board, and many thanks to the AOPA Foundation and Northrop Grumman Corporation for recognizing the value of DART to our local community!

Look for the next DART exercise after the first of the year.
