MAKE CHAPTER 288 YOUR AVIATION HOME! E-AB, TYPE CERTIFIED, VINTAGE, WARBIRD, ETC.
As you've probably heard, Chapter 288 is bringing the EAA's Ford Trimotor back to the area. We will be offering rides in this iconic early airliner to raise money for our youth activities and we need your help. We will schedule morning and afternoon shifts to handle ramp duties and marshall passengers safely to and from the aircraft.
The Trimotor will arrive at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport on March 9th and will be based at American Aero Services where we will host our event. Our ride activities will start on Thursday, the 12th with rides for local media folks and event sponsors. Rides will be offered through Sunday, the 15th and the Trimotor departs for Gainesville on Monday, the 16th.
From our two previous Trimotor experiences, we know that volunteers have fun and learn much from their involvement.
We will hold a brief volunteers meeting immediately following the 288 chapter meeting on Thursday the 20th. Please plan to hang around to learn how you can help.
