We have lost yet another senior member and beloved pilot. 1202 Charlie Penny passed away Saturday 23rd September. God speed, Charlie. Fly with the angels, my friend.
A long-overdue congratulations is in order for 064 Brian Lee. Our longest-serving Pilot crossed the 5,000-hour mark, becoming a Senior Founder's Pilot! Way to go, Brian!
****** DCA-001, our founder Charles Wood, passed away on April 26th 2023. A link to his obituary is posted in the forum under the Morning Muster section. ******
Major changes are coming to our website! We have a new webmaster and a couple of new technical gurus who will point our VA into the future. One has already reconstructed Charles Wood's Navigaition page! The future's so bright I gotta wear shades!
Multiplayer is becoming ever more popular. What started off as a random once-a-week gathering has become an entire department with planned and scheduled flights almost every day of the week. Go into the forum to find the next session and join in!
3/31/23 - Another Operation: Varsity is in the books. It was quite the success, and nothing less is expected of our VP 0996 Glen Broome! The 2023 World Tour is in the early planning stages, so watch the website and the news crawler for details.
Due to a gross error on my part, February's Screenshot Contest winner will be posted through March. In all fairness, I had to do this. After all, it was my fault for not consulting with Yvon prior to updating the web site. I apologize, Yvon, and I hope I have solved the issue.
3/11/23 - 2421 Glenn Sayles is our latest Chief Pilot, crossing the 2,000 hour mark on March 11, 2023. Congratulations, Glenn!!!
