High Flight

Small Town Airport

Service Learning Memoir

Comments about our website:

David Stucker: Ted, while surfing the HCAA website, I noticed that no credit was given the author of High Flight. So naturally, I scanned/stole a copy from the rear cover of the National Museum of the United States Air Force Aircraft Brochure. Attached you will find a copy in PDF form.  Credit, as well as the history of the High Flight Sonnet, can now be listed.  John Gillespie Magee, Jr.  In December 1941, Pilot Officer John G. Magee, a 19 Year old American serving with the Royal Canadian Air Force in England, was killed when his Spitfire collided with another airplane inside a cloud.  Several months before his death, he composed his immortal sonnet “High Flight, “a copy of which he fortunately mailed to his parents in the U. S. A. Thank you very much for the information David.

Pat Hurley: I flew in for your August Picnic and want to say “thanks” for a great event…also ordered some pictures through the shutterfly option and they were fantastic.  Look forward to flying in again for the next one.
Barbara Lyons:  Cool site!  Just fount it.  We live a few miles from the Gordon Graham Airport.  We love it.  Wished we lived right next to it! 
Todd: Great website very cool pictures and great information.  Great weather links. 
Vern: Like the bottom of the stove: GRATE!!!!!
Ernie: Happy New Year.  Like the site.  Might consider adding link for NOAA's aviation weather site http://aviationweather.gov/ replacing or in addition to the current general http://www.noaa.gov/

July 29, 2011 from Mike Oberther: What a wonderful photo presentation on the HCAA web site. I particularly
enjoyed the hand-propping images of the red biplane. Great work!
I've attached a shot I took right before the delicious dinner. We can't wait
for the next get together!

 
July 29, 2011 from Jim Graham  This is a fabulous website.  Who is the webmaster that has so much talent?

Good photos of the barn construction.  They cut the serving window after I
left this afternoon.  Really up to date photos.

                  rain cut into our visit.

This is only the second event I have been able to attend under the new leadership
and I enjoy the fresh new enthusiasm in the air. The food Saturday was fantastic the
fellowship was great and there were even a few pilots taking advantage of the $4.99
AvGas.
 
Thanks to Ron, Tammy, John and everyone else that sets up, tears down, and all the
other behind the scene heroes who get evolved with making these events great.

September 14, 2014 Noland Elrod HCAA Scholarship Aviator
Submitted by Dave Remondini Noland's CFI
Hi, I am the CFI for Nolan Elrod, who received a scholarship from HCAA last year. He
is doing well. After a hiatus this winter, he is back at it. He has completed all of
his requirements except his long cross country and his written test. He has done
well and I hope he finishes this fall. He started at Indiana State and is going
after an Aviation Management degree. I thought you would like an update.

Mark Mackenzie email:  comments: HCAA is very fortunate to have a resource like Ted Bock to put together and maintain
         this web site. Love the Christmas party video. Thanks Ted for a wonderful job.

Suggestions:

Michael Mossman, EAA Chapter 1311 website editor.  On the home page of your website you have a nice mention
of EAA Chapter 1311. Could you link to our chapter website http://www.eaa1311.org? We have had a link to your organization for years.
Mark Smith:  The site needs a road map to the field.  Suggest link with
mapquest or google.  For fun, a not-for-nav sectional and low route would be nice.
I will be driving to Lunch at the Arpt. The link should be a key button, not buried.
Blue Skies!
