President's Message

September 2022

Hello All,

I am hoping it cools down a bit soon as I would like to make a few fall flights with the family and it may be cool enough to finish the hangar bathroom! I managed to get a few practice approaches in this month and reminded myself that I need to do even more to stay proficient. I am in Wichita for work but hope to get at least one evening at the midwestern vintage sailplane rally before I head back to Utah. I was hoping to go to the Reno air races but I do not think I will make it this year. I did manage to spend a few hours at the National Museum of the Air Force recently and highly recommend to plan a few days there if you get the chance. I enjoyed the experimental hangar with some of my childhood favorites like the X-29, X-15, XB-70 Valkyrie and I was excited to see the Bird of Prey as well! I hope to see some of you at the meeting this month!

Trip Report - Kanab Canard Fly-in

Labor Day weekend is the traditional time for the annual Kanab Canard Fly-in. On the schedule, Friday was noted as a "pre-arrival" day.  There were 34 canards that pre-arrived, the farthest coming in from Philadelphia.  Notably, all three COZY's built at KOGD were able to make it to be a part of all the excitement. Good times were had by all!

Kanab is an incredible backdrop for these planes!

Canards were everywhere!
Honey, grab the kids ...!
