Young Eagles Rally

May 11, 2019

After having to cancel our April Young Eagles rally because of high winds, we made a rousing start on the season in May. We flew 40 kids on May 11, our regularly scheduled rally. And then we flew 25 more on May 18, in a private rally for Jookender Community Initiatives. (They're a Boston area Russian community group.) What's even more remarkable is the number of pilots that pulled this off. Both days were bright and sunny, but still on the blustery side, keeping our light taildraggers on the sidelines. On top of that, several airplanes were down for annual or otherwise unavailable. We did the May 11 rally with two airplanes and three pilots, with Peter Morse from Danielson, CT, flying an astounding 23 kids. May 18 was not nearly as frantic, with three airplanes and four pilots flying "only" 25 kids. Also on the 18th, we welcomed another new Young Eagles pilot: James Mwathi, a buddy of Dominik Airey from Beverly. All told, an impressive number for two weekends! Thanks as usual to our steadfast ground crew of Greg and Pete Alberti, Dominik Airey, and Mark Saklad. (Bob Glorioso and a couple others also helped out on the 11th - too busy for me to keep track of everyone.)
