Thanks to generous donation from Goulet Aircraft Supply, Volunteers clean up C-FLUG

Goulet Aircraft Supply provided over $2000 worth of materials to bring C-FLUG back to new. Volunteers included people who interested in borrowing C-FLUG and people keen to support pilots without planes so they too can enjoy the adventure of grass-roots flying.

 Dean dropped in with his friend Bert Elam and provided terrific info on heat shrouds used on C150 in cold weather flying. He's sending us an article describing the details.

Growing number of volunteers - now over 50 people and companies are involved with C-FLUG! This little C150 is providing an training and education opportunity unheard of anywhere in North America.  

 Marissa and James prepare nose wheel landing gear for primer.

 Joseph Martin drains the fuel tanks so we can replace the belly fuel drain.
