A monthly communiqué for the pilots of Reigle Aviation

Let Us Take You For A Ride!

            The Reigle Airport Open House known as Nostalgia Days is coming soon! This month on September 20th and 21st we will be celebrating and sharing our airport with all who care to come. Plane rides for only $20, hot dogs for only a buck and lots to see. Aircraft on display. Some remote control airplane flying. Parachute jumps. Aerobatics and on Sunday helicopter rides will be available from Dutch Country Helicopters. For the more adventurous we will have premium Aerobatic rides available, experience in a World War II airplane, or you may choose an all time classic flight in the Piper J-3 Cub. Come have fun, and be a part of helping us celebrate our 72nd year serving the aviation community. Don't forget to invite a friend!

            Happy Landings, Duane Reigle.

IMC CLUB

            Our next IMC Club meeting will be on Tuesday, October 7th, at 7:00 pm. Following a new video scenario, we will have a discussion presented by Jack Gainer on how night conditions affect the human eye. All are welcome to attend, and remember to invite a friend. Suggestions? Let me, Marc, know! Contact md_martini@hotmail.com

Keep'em Flyin'

For take offs and landings, be sure to keep your toes off the brakes, to avoid increased wear on the brakes and tires, as well as reduce heat, and shorten take off roll.

Instructor's Corner

On take off, start to increase back pressure on the yoke slightly before liftoff to lightly raise the nose. This will help put the plane in the proper attitude to lift off when it's ready to fly, making for a smoother take off, with less vibration from the nose wheel.
