Houston Chapter of the 99s and the Greater Houston Association of Flight Instructors (GHAFI) organized a ‘Spring Poker Run’ which starts at Galaxy FBO on Saturday, March 28th.
Houston Pinch Hitter hosted a Pilot Companion Course on April 4th in the Galaxy FBO conference room. The objective of this course was to introduce a non-flying member of the family to flying an airplane. There were 20 attendees in the course and 4 students are now pursuing their full private certificates. Five aircraft were on the ramp for the attendees to learn about: 2 Piper Archers, a Grumman Cheetah, a Mooney, and a Cessna 172. This program is essential when it comes to being a competent Co-pilot and all left feeling well versed to fly in an emergency. Black Walnut Cafe catered the event and all guests had a chance to enjoy the facilities and the information they gained will be essential for their future flights.

The holiday season is officially upon us and that means it’s time to find the perfect gift for the AvGeek in your life. Pilots and aviation enthusiasts are all alike in the fact that they are difficult to buy for. With their very particular and expensive tastes, finding a gift they really want isn’t always easy.
