This year is the 60th anniversary of the P-51's moving from Stout Field in Indianapolis to the Hulman Field Airport in Terre Haute. Jim was apart of the unit at that time. Jim saw this print at Tammy and Shane's home during the Christmas Party and Shane and Jim had a long conversation about his military service. The print is a commemorative of the flying history of the 181st Fighter Wing through the last flying aircraft (the F-16C). Shane thought it was a simple way to thank him for his service on the 60th Anniversary. Very well done Shane, thanks.

 HCAA 2013 Christmas Dinner

 

New bill would expand driver's license medical

After nearly two years of FAA inaction on the AOPA/EAA third-class medical petition, Congress has taken matters into its own hands, offering up legislation that would vastly expand the number of pilots who could fly without going through the expensive and time-consuming third-class medical certification process. Reps. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.), a member of the House General Aviation Caucus, and GA Caucus Co-Chair Sam Graves (R-Mo.) on Dec. 11 introduced the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act. The legislation would dramatically expand the parameters for flying under the driver's license medical standard. Rokita and Graves are both AOPA members and active pilots. Click here to read more>>

 It took me 18 years and 15 days to rebuild my PA12 to the tune of about 55K, I don't even want to guess what it cost to get this thing in the air. What a beauty she is. Had to share it with you guys, this is one that even if you have seen it before, it is worth seeing again. GOD BLESS..Jim Dukeman. Thanks to Duane Skoog, EAA President, Chapter 1374 Putnam County for the video.

Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan

Douglas Corrigan became a legendary aviator, not because of his accomplishments as a pilot but rather because of a supposed navigational error. In 1938, Corrigan "mistakenly" flew from New York to Ireland--when he was supposed to be flying from New York to California--because he seemingly misread his compass. For Americans, who were caught in the midst of the Great Depression, Corrigan's antic provided a great deal of humor and uplift and he became a national folk hero. Click for the rest of the Story>>

HCAANewsletter/WomenPilots12.jpg

Nearly 25 years ago, pilots and  their families in the Hendricks County area learned of the expansion of Eagle Creek Airport--and the subsequent closing of the Speedway Airport. Because many of those on the West-side used the Speedway Airport, it became evident to those flyers that a new airport was needed--and the Hendricks County Aviation Association was born. On August 18, 2012 the HCAA will host its annual open house luncheon at the Hendricks County Airport and while the casual

Fact or Fiction

It has been reported in magazines that Hummingbirds hitch rides South in the winter and North in the summer aboard the backs of Geese.  This picture was taken by an airline pilot this spring where a Hummingbird was onboard the back of a Goose heading North.
