Recent Highlights


Armed Forces Aero Club Kids Discovery Flights 2010: On July 24th nearly 70 children from various youth groups in San Diego were given a free discovery flight! Photos of the event taken by Operations and Safety Officer, Noel Talampas can be viewed here. Video shot and edited by our club President, Pat Lawler can be viewed here.

Yuma Air show March 2010:  For our 6th consecutive year, AFAC was invited to participate in the static displays for the MCAS Yuma Airshow. Great hospitality by the MCAS personnel, tailwinds to the air show and back to MYF, and great VFR weather all weekend made this a very memorable event! Photos taken by Noel Talampas can be viewed here.

Christmas Party 2009:  Our traditional event in December filled up the banquet room at Filippi�s Pizza Grotto in Mira Mesa, thanks to the very generous hospitality of our own Steve Esqulin and his �family� there! An abbreviated business meeting was followed by a wonderful holiday buffet dinner and awards to the Borrego contest winners. The usual high-spirited pirate gift exchange took place to put a great final touch on the evening. Pictures of the festivities were taken by Noel Talampas and are posted here.

Borrego Fly-In 2009: It was a blast! A number of members who are active on Facebook have posted impressive pictures and video clips there, some within seconds or minutes after they occurred... which is one of its distinct advantages.

Congratulations to the contest winners:
   � Student Pilot � Phil Grimm (Winning low score: 600)
   � Private Pilot � Chris Martindell (Winning low score: 445)
   � CFI Pilot � Howard Jackson (Winning low score: 525)
   � Dave Piontek (Winning low score: 7 ft)

Miramar Air Show 2009:  The Club again made its presence known on board the base (our original home) with the newly painted Cardinal on display, and a full complement of volunteers over the weekend to answer questions, promote the Club, and enjoy the show � which featured the Canadian Snowbirds and an exceptionally stunning Blues performance this year! Some 48 people entered our free flight hour contest, over 80% of them indicating a desire for further contact. Pictures by Noel Talampas from the event featuring the Cardinal with new paint are now posted here.

The flight hour raffle drawing was held at the October Board Member meeting, and the winner was
Phil Webster. Congratulations!
