The Air and Space 18A Gyroplane

The Air and Space 18A is one of only three gyroplanes to have received an FAA Standard Airworthiness Certificate since the Second World War. Designed in the late 1950s - early 1960s, the Air and Space 18A was the brainchild of fertilizer manufacturer and distributor Ray Umbaugh, who considered gyroplanes an ideal, inexpensive means of increasing the efficiency of his sales force.

2014 E16 Open House a Success
Written by Mike Brogley   
Saturday, 31 May 2014

The 2014 South County Airport Open House and Fly-In on May 17th was a huge success. SCAPA members assisted with set up, worked the parking ramp area with a full team to assist Fly-In planes with parking and keep the public and moving propellers safely apart, and assisted with teardown and cleanup to return the E16 south ramp to service. SCAPA members also helped cook up the delicious tri tip for the sandwiches, and piloted Young Eagles flights at the event, taking care of the long line of eager kids by giving free rides in fixed wing and helicopter general aviation aircraft all day long.

SCAPA 2014 Scholarship Awards!
Written by Jim Petersen   
Wednesday, 14 May 2014

At our member meeting on Tuesday night, May 13th, SCAPA awarded our 2014 annual $1,000 SCAPA scholarships to three outstanding young people:
1) Jose Rocha who is a Civil Air Patrol volunteer and very high GPA high school student.
2) Ivan Delgado who is a current Magnum maintenance employee and high GPA Gavilan student.
3) Steven Naranjo who is working on his A&P certification with high GPA and motivation at Gavilan.

We had ten top quality candidates to select from and it was a tough choice to finalize our vote. Pat Belanger did a knock up job at getting the applications out and doing the foot work.

Sincerely,
Jim Petersen
