On September 15th Scout Troop 680 visited Johnson Field for a merit badge training day and some hands on flying with the help of our instructors. The Scouts had a great time and the members that helped out were impressed with the young men because they were attentive, polite, and showed a genuine interest in the subjects that were taught. Tim Hitchcock did an excellent job co-ordinating the day’s events. David Drowns covered basic aerody-namic principles while Bob Berry and Bob Broughton
covered instruments and mapping. As usual Dennis Newbeck and his instructor team did a great job getting the scouts some stick time on the club’s trainer fleet. Ron Schuyler and Roger Cosio served up a great lunch and Patrick Pranica helped me and the scouts build Sky Streaks for a lesson in simple model building and the importance of CG. Thanks to all the members who helped out this was a very successful event.
