RAA members pose for a group photo after discussing various issues that impact the airport community at Redlands Municipal Airport. Topics discussed such as airport impacts of AirFest 2018 to our wildlife hazards were the topic of discussion at the February meeting of the Redlands Airport Association. Thank you to RAA members that took the time to get involved
We had a great turnout this morning. 14 REI aviators and guests enjoyed a breakfast fly out to Chiriaco Summit (L77) We are hearing it was the largest group from REI in quite a few years. We were also joined at the Cafe by a large group from French Valley. If you are interested in tagging along on the next adventure, you are welcome to meet this group in the REI lobby on VFR Sundays at 7:30 am. Hope you can make it!
On October 17, 2017, REI member Ryan Stinson earned his Private Pilot Certificate. Ryan’s family was there to celebrate the occasion. Congratulations Ryan!!!
On Saturday, August 19th, members of the RAA grilled burgers, hot dogs while EAA Chapter 845 took some potential future aviators on free airplane rides to celebrate National Aviation Day. A total of 33 children and 5 adults experienced flight courtesy of some generous EAA 845 pilots.
This was second year the RAA celebrated National Aviation Day. The holiday was created by proclamation in 1939 by President Franklin Roosevelt. The holiday coincides with the birthday of Orville Wright, one of the designer and pilots of the first successful airplane, the Wright Flyer.
This year’s celebration also honored the 70th birthday of Redlands Municipal Airport. A special cake was made for the occasion and served to those in attendance.
Happy B’day KREI!
