DART Awarded Grants! PDF Print E-mail
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.

August 24th Annual BBQ at Magnum Aviation! PDF Print E-mail
Written by Mike Brogley   
Sunday, 10 August 2014

This year’s summer BBQ party will kick off at 4:00 pm on August 23rd at the Magnum hangar. Your grill masters will be Jim Peterson and Mike Brogley, and SCAPA will pick up the charges for burgers, hot dogs, sodas, water and cake. If you bring a side dish such as appetizers, salad, fruit, or veggies and serving utensils, that would round out the smorgasbord. Also, if you’d like to drink something other than sodas and water, feel free to bring it along, and there will likely be some spare room in the ice chests. As usual, there will be a raffle, and folks who are at the airport but not SCAPA members will be welcome to attend the party and meal.

See You There!

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.
