Saturday, December 8, 2018: 2018 SCAPA Annual Holiday Party PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Brogley   
Thursday, 11 October 2018
Save the date! Saturday, December 8, 2018. We are once again holding our annual SCAPA Holiday Party at beautiful and historic Villa Mira Monte (aka Morgan Hill House) starting at 4:30 p.m.

Villa Mira Monte was built in 1886 by Hiram Morgan Hill for his bride, Diana Murphy Hill, as a country getaway from their home in San Francisco. 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. The house has been beautifully restored by the Morgan Hill Historical Society.

SCAPA Members,

Thank you to all the airport supporters that turned out for the Special HLUET Committee Meeting Monday, Sept. 17, 2018. Between CAAPSO, SCAPA and the SJSU Aviation Department contingent, by my count supporters greatly outnumbered the anti-airport contingent. I also would like to everyone for their great comments and their very respectful tone. That even-tempered tone was also commended by the Supervisors.

How will the Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast system affect the way pilots fly? What are the different types of compliant radios, their costs, benefits and limitations? What are the installation requirements for aircraft owners?
