Our visit to Aspen Flying Club

AFCLogo

 Every once and awhile, we highlight a customer we're really impressed with. We visited Aspen Flying Club last fall and thought you might like to hear about them.

For starters, Aspen Flying Club has a great location within flying distance of the Rocky Mountains near Denver, Colorado.  Location is a big factor but we think its team and diverse fleet of over 40 aircraft is a big part of the club's success.  At Aspen, they're not just training pilots, they've created an atmosphere where people can connect and have fun together as they pursue their passion.

It's main location is at Centennial Airport (KAPA) and through their recent partnership with Alliance Flight Training, members of Aspen Flying Club also have access to the rental fleet at Front Range Airport (KFTG).  No longer do students who obtain their license have to go elsewhere to fly.  With such a comprehensive fleet, students are assured they will have a plane to rent at Aspen Flying Club. Through monthly club fly-outs, many of the students and pilots team up to fly together. 

Why does Aspen Flying Club use Flight Schedule Pro?  "With such a large and diverse fleet, it’s important we have a system that can keep up with our demands.  We log well over 1000 hours each month.  Without a robust and automated system like Flight Schedule Pro, we would never be able to schedule and dispatch so many flights. Our members like Flight Schedule Pro because of its simple and intuitive user interface.  There’s no need for training.  After setting up an account, our members can easily figure out how to schedule flights on their own.  They also love the iPhone App." - Chris Dillis, President, Aspen Flying Club.

Medallion Foundation Supporting Nenana Pilot Program.....

Longtime FSP client, Medallion Foundation, http://medallionfoundation.org/, has provided Nenana High School in Nenana, Alaska with a new flight simulator!  The simulator will add to the school's new aviation education program, including flying skills and aircraft maintenance. Nenana City Public School (K-12) is located 300 miles north of Anchorage.  It serves both local and rural students.

“Medallion is about changing the safety culture at a young age as these students learn to fly promoting and educating safety first, so as they grow and advance the culture is already learned,” said Jerry Rock, executive director of the Medallion Foundation. “We also want to promote aviation education in interior Alaska, so Medallion is providing this simulator to ensure the program’s success.”

"Aviation as a career path has long been a goal of the Alaska Air Carriers Assocation to create technical training in schools that would act as a pipeline to the airlines in Alaska," said seasoned Alaska flight instructor, Mike Morgan, owner of Proflite of Alaska (also an FSP client), http://www.proflitealaska.com.

The simulator, a Precision Flight Controls Cirrus II unit, runs XPlane software on two screens. The FAA authorized Aviation Training Device has all of the normal single engine Cessna, Piper and Diamond Katana aircraft.  It is located at the Nenana High School and is accessible to the flying public.  Adam White, President of the Alaska Airmen's Association, is the liaison and contact for the simulators use.

The non-profit Medallion Foundation, an aviation safety organization, was formed in 2001 by the Alaska Air Carriers Association and operates 18 (ATD) aircraft simulators statewide in Alaska. 

For more information contact Jerry Rock, Executive Director, Medallion Foundation, at  907-743-8050 or Eric Gebhart, Nenana Superintendent, at  907-832-5464.

How I Spent My Summer by Kay Wegner....

FsplogoWith school starting and Fall approaching, I thought I'd reflect a little bit on how I spent my summer. Actually, I've spent the last eight plus summers working for Flight Schedule Pro, http://www.flightschedulepro.com/ ~ and I love it! I've been with the company almost since its inception and have no plans to move on.  I guess that means you'll have to put up with me for awhile.

Why do I not mind working summers?  Becasue I get to work with the nicest, friendliest people in the aviation industry!  I could list FSP clients, but I would be typing for weeks on end. Besides, you know who you are.  You are the people who respond, "Hi, Kay, how are you?" when I answer the phone.  You are the folks who ask for a little help now and then with a billing matter and you are pleasant!! You are the clients who have trusted Flight Schedule Pro for years on end and will continue to do so on into the future. You are the new clients who have chosen to let us help you grow your business.  And we want to do just that!  We are grateful and appreciative for each and every one of you!

No, sirree, no glitzy commercial airlines for me.  I'm not interested in fancy terminals with dozens of gift shops, even if they are in a "faraway exotic location". I'm sticking right here in the GA industry with GA airports, pilots, customers and some of the best food you'll find anywhere in the world.  Namely, restaurants located in GA airports!

So, here's to a great school year for the kiddos and many more years of my service to 
Flight Schedule Pro clients! I am looking forward to it.  You fill my days with joy and I thank you!

PS  No, my boss didn't tell me to write this!

Ohio's latest license plate design showcases the State's rich aviation history

OHIOPlatesOhio's latest license plate design showcases the State's rich aviation history!  The National Aviation Heritage Alliance (aviationheritagearea.org/) urges motorists to show their support for Ohio's aerospace industry by ordering one of the "Leader In Flight" specialty plates.

The plate is an image of a Wright Flyer, the world's first successfully powered airplane, a space shuttle, the first plane to fly into orbit and the phrase "The Leader In Flight".

This special plate can be ordered from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Behicles.  The new design is called "Ohio Pride".

"Everywhere you travel your 'Leader In Flight' license plates will remind others that Ohio is the birthplace of aviation - the State where the Wright brothers lived and invented the airplane", said Tony Sculimbrene, NAHA Executive Director. "The plate also reminds others that Ohio remains the leader in flight as an aerospace powerhouse. NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton played critical roles in development technology used in the space shuttle."

“And, of course, the first American in orbit and the first man to walk on the moon were both Buckeyes,” Sculimbrene said.

Visit LeaderInflight.org for more information and a downloadable order form.

Kansas Aircraft Corp. acquired by Bizav...

KAC%20Logo2Tim and Dianne White have acquired Kansas Aircraft Corporation, KansasAircraft.com.  Headquartered at New Century Air Center (IXD) near Gardner, KS, the aviation sales and consulting firm was  founded by Michele Stauffer in 1990.  She will remain active in the business following the acquisition. Both aviation enthusiasts and advocates for the industry, the Whites see this as an opportunity to work with the aircraft owner/pilot.

“I am very excited about this announcement,” said Stauffer. “Tim and Dianne have outstanding reputations in the industry and share my core beliefs of integrity, trust and doing what’s right for the customer. They are passionate about aviation, both personally and professionally, and will no doubt build upon our solid success to take the company to even higher levels.”

The firm will continue to focus on new Cessna single-engine, high-end piston, heavy twins and turboprop aircraft. The Sales and Support Staff will continue with the new ownership and the company will remain at New Century Air Center.
