Elliot & Melanie Abel have created a Forum as a result of our "Ideas" meeting.

This is going to be a much needed tool for our members to introduce themselves.   It includes the option to create a profile which can include your picture allowing members to get to know you, as well as a great sharable calendar to list flying events and social gatherings via google. 
A Forum is also included for us to communicate and enjoy.
Our current website ( is still operational.

I encourage all members to access and create a profile, add a picture of yourself and tell us something about you, what you fly or your interest in aviation to get started.  Tell us your hobbies or anything you feel comfortable sharing.

If you need help creating, give me a call and I will certainly try to accommodate.
