The attached photo is from today after Tony Talamantes was told he passed his private pilot flight test.
I am certain that Tony is exceptionally tired after nearly a four hour oral and two hour flight test.
Tony is also a part owner of N2134E.
Tony has worked extremely hard to earn his pilot certificate over the past few months. If you have the time please send Tony a congratulation. You can email Tony at: email@example.com

When tuning in to the Southern California Logistics Airport (KVCV) ATIS, it is not uncommon to hear ‘UAS operations underway’. What does this really mean?
Yesterday upon calling tower for an intersection takeoff clearance, I was told to hold short for departing traffic. As I looked towards the end of the runway I saw a v-tail and thought I would be treated to a front row seat of a F/18 performing a viking departure.
Instead this flew by…
Something tells me this won’t be the last time I receive a hold short notice to make way for arriving or departing UAV’s.
Keep calm and drone on,
Our bylaws do not allow the RAA to participate or intervene in (including the publication or distribution of statements) any political campaign on behalf of any candidate for public office. But, we can invite candidates to RAA functions so they can share their views on our airport and community issues of concern to our members. This will help our members make good choices when they do cast their votes on election day.
This impartial activity supports one of the RAA’s purposes as stated in our Articles of Incorporation; Preservation and enhancement of airports, airspace and pilots rights in California.
With that in mind, we are going to have an informal forum for city council candidates on September 28th and October 26th as part of our regular RAA monthly meetings. Our meetings start at 6pm and will be held in the airport public lobby at 1755 Sessums Dr.
We will give our council candidates an opportunity to hear about airport issues and the candidates will each have 10 minutes to speak and answer questions.
We hope you can make it!
The Redlands Fire Department attended the RAA monthly meeting on August 24th, to give all in attendance a great fire safety demonstration.
Members learned the importance of proper communication when calling 911 operators to request emergency services at the airport. Communications should be detailed and include the location of the incident on the airport and the nature of the emergency to help them to determine who will respond (police or fire) and the level of response. They also stressed the importance of having someone meet them at the gate to guide them to the accident location.
Fire department personnel also instructed those in attendance on how and when to use the large dry fire extinguisher that Hangar 24 donated to the airport.
And finally we had some hands on fun understanding the forces involved with line pressures. Go Jim Hoyt!
