CONGRATUALTIONS in SPADES

First, on the weekend of Aug. 31 – Sept 1, our chief tow pilot Steve De La Cruz won FIRST PLACE in the intermediate category in the annual national aerobatic competition at Delano, CA.  (Those who’ve not flown aerobatics cannot imagine how big a deal this really is!)

Also, this past week, four Squadron pilots (Karl Sommer, Sean Eckstein, Dave Raspet and Barry McGarraugh) soared north out of Crystal, Diamond distance to Gabbs, NV.
