Old Beacon Comes Down

Video by: Don Cook                                                                                                            5-14-2013

Today the old beacon came down with a lot of help from fellow pilots.  Ken Plesser is going to remove the old beacon from the base, and install a new beacon.  This should take a couple of days.

SCBC at Whiteplains Plantation SC99 5-12-2013

Video by: Don Cook

This is a quick draft for this years SCBC that was held this past Sunday (Mothers Day)  at Whiteplains Plantation.  They sold over 120 meal tickets, and had about 23 planes fly in.  Managed to make a small profit that went to EAA 242 at Owens.  Next year, it won't be held on Mothers Day. That should be a week off for everyone.

We had perfect weather for this years SCBC.  Cool temps, blue sky and a light breeze.  Thanks to everyone that made this a great success.  The grounds looked really good.  

When I finish the full video, I'll re-post it.

Subject: SCAA Passport Program

The SC Aviation Association with the support of the SC Aeronautics Commission is launching the SC Passport Program where pilots are rewarded for flying to SC's public use publically owned airports.  While several of our board members attend  the breakfast flyins and will be announcing it there, we were hoping you might reference this program on your web site.

Attached is a poster that is being sent to all the involved airports.  Also attached is a trifold brochure which describes the program and the reward levels.  This would seem to be a natural for the Breakfast Club as you already travel to many of the airports in the course of a year.  Pilots may sign up for the Passport Program on the SCAA website  ( as of May 15th..

If you have any questions I can be reached at the above email or via cell at 803-261-9085.

I look forward to working with you.
