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!

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: firstname.lastname@example.org
