Situational Awareness

The big picture

I’m pleased to announce that Anheuser-Busch will be the presenting sponsor of the World Aerobatic Championships (WAC). Since assuming the office of IAC president last summer, I have been struggling to close the gap in the WAC’s budget, and I’m very happy to say that my very good friends at Anheuser-Busch have helped me to make sure this will be a first-class international event.

The Leading Edge

We all move forward on their wings

It might have been that time when your uncle flew his 172 to town for Thanksgiving and let you take the yoke as you flew over your house.

It might have been that spring afternoon you spent sitting in the field watching the returning mallards and Canada geese set their wings…twist and turn and work the wind…then drop, soft as feathers, onto the farm pond.

Come to Lakeland!

The 2003 World Aerobatic Championships By the time this reaches your homes, we will be three short months away from the 2003 World Aerobatic Championships (WAC). At the time of this writing, I have just returned from Lakeland, Florida, where we had meetings with Contest Director Phil Knight and Sun ’n Fun President John Burton and Sun ’n Fun Vice President Greg Harbaugh. I came away from that meeting energized and enthused as to the progress being made on the WAC. This event will be something that all IAC members and our country will be proud of.

One thing I am very pleased with since taking office is the way our officers, directors, committee members, and staff have formed a cohesive team to push our club forward. It would be impossible for a few people to run this organization alone, and the cumulative effort of many is really what makes things happen.
