We have some very exciting member events coming up!
Join us on Wednesday April 3rd at 6pm for an evening of pizza and history at the International Women’s Air and Space Museum. This program will feature a private tour of the museum, pizza dinner and a trivia scavenger hunt. A big thank you to Museum Director Heather Alexander and IWASM for welcoming us. Please RSVP to either Vicki or me by March 27th. The museum is located at 1501 North Marginal Road in the main terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport.
On Saturday July 13th, mark your calendars for an exciting tour of NASA. This tour is featuring NASA’s Drop Zone and Zero Gravity Research Facility. These tours are open to the public, so we will need all participants names by June 9th to ensure our spots together on the tour. (Tour details can be found at www.nasa.gov/centers/Glenn/events/tours.html)
Hangar Cookouts begin Friday May 17th; these will continue on the third Friday of each month.
March is Our New Dues Month:
Thank you to everyone for renewing your DAC Membership. Your membership supports the DAC in educational, outreach, and social activities. The DAC offers us a place to have fun and learn, as well as providing aviation experiences that are unique to our community. Membership dues of $20 can be paid to Vicki anytime this month.
It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking About Discover Aviation Day:
May is just around the corner (the icy, bitterly cold corner) and Discover Aviation Day will be here before we know it. Our goal is 100% member involvement! There is something for everyone to do, and a role to fit anyone’s interests. Last year’s attendance blew us all away, and this year may surpass it. Please start to think about what type of a role you would enjoy, whether it’s setting up, serving food, taking photographs, kids activities, selling tickets, tearing down…we definitely need your help in making this a successful event.
Parking at the DAC Hangar:
There is absolutely no parking in front of any hangars, this includes pedestrian doors, in addition to hangar doors. There is no parking on any active taxiways. MRK has also asked that there be no parking on any grassy areas. You may park at the north or south end of our hangar row. If these areas fill up, please park in the far west unused taxiway. If you notice someone parked incorrectly, please kindly help them find a better spot.
