Eagles Nest Airport Will Build on 2013 Progress in the New Year
Attendance was high for the January aviator dinner at Calloways ( likely due to the freezing temperatures! ). The next is set to take place on February 12th.
TO THE EAGLES NEST PILOT COMMUNITY
I am pleased to report that Eagles Nest, with the support of the Eagleswood community and the NJ Department of Transportation continues to grow and expand as a General Aviation Airport. Working with the Eagleswood recreational commission, we hope to establish an annual community day in September. The day would wrap around the 5K run and walk sponsored by the town and includes EAA chapter airplane rides, food, amusements, a DJ, the local fire company and a pilot fly in. We also hope to begin a pilot fly in for Toys for Tots in December.
I encourage you to participate in our monthly pilot dinner and Saturday destination lunch flight. To join either group contact Al Striet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also forming a flying club, as an alternative to renting an airplane, which will allow pilots to share the cost of an airplane while maintaining an ownership interest. Contact Dan Dreher for details 609-661-5568 (Daniel.email@example.com)
A more comprehensive description of the airport development can be found under the tab “airport development.”
Hangar rentals and tie down fees will remain the same in 2014. I appreciate your support and business and encourage you to have pilot friends come and visit the new and exciting Eagles Nest. If there is a new face or airplane on the field, seek out the pilot, say hello and extend a hand in friendship.
A special thank you to the volunteers who help maintain Eagles Nest at their time and expense. Special thanks to Bob Lampkin for all he does for Eagles Nest, Pilots N Paws and general aviation. Without your help, I could not maintain the facility.
Please support the tandem skydive operation, the maintenance operation run by Thomas Gray (732-278-8201), our banner towing operators and flight/scenic ride school.
Fly safe and respect our neighbors. Peter
