Wednesday, June 6th
Our speaker for this month is Steve King. (No, not the horror fiction writer!) Steve is a private pilot from England. He has experienced some flying here in the States and will speak to us about the difference between flying here and in England.
Steve King is a lifelong London, England resident--until two weeks ago! He has been flying in Britain since 1986 and is a British private pilot with instrument and night ratings (which are separate in the UK). He is the previous past Chairman of his flying club at historic Biggin Hill Airport, in the London suburbs, which was significant in WWII. While we might fly to Sikeston for lunch, Steve has often flown for lunch to France or Belguim, and he might tell us about those trips. By trade, he is a computer aided drafting technician for civil engineers--and will be looking for a job as soon as he marries CPS's own Diane Earhart. When he worked for the British Civil Service he designed military and civil airfields, significantly rebuilding and upgrading the airfield in the Faulkland Islands in 1983-84 following the war.
Our private room opens up at 1800 with Dinner ($18/person) being served at 1900. Steve will make his presentation at 2000.
