Summer Is Here, Four Quick Tips For A Safe, Fun & Enjoyable 2012 Flying Seasion
I hope everybody has had a good winter and now that spring is here it is time to kick the tires and light the fires and fly that machine of yours but here are some ideas before you head off into the wild blue yonder:
FIX ALL DISCREPANCIES
: I always schedule my annual inspection for the Cub for late winter early spring to start off the "flying season" with all outstanding squawks and discrepancies repaired. I consider the first flight after an annual a "test flight" and never take passengers on that flight,would never launch into IMC (if I had a machine capable of it) and always do a lenthy pre-flight as even the best IA-AP is human and a very likely time for a mechanical issue can be right after maintinance is preformed. I should say, I have never in my thirty years of flying much of it in Aerobatic planes/Antiques etc had an issue with my trusted IA-AP as they are meticulous but that being said I inspect all the work myself everytime and use the term "trust but verify".
WATER IS FOR DRINKING:
For our customers and friends in the tiedowns especially but this applies to all aircraft owners its critical to routinely inspect your fuel caps (everytime you fuel up) and replace immediately any worn or old gaskets or cracked caps.Look closely especially if they are plastic caps.
sometimes due to work schedules/personal schedules etc I have found myself rushing thru a preflight or a checklist. When you feel external non-flying pressures creep into your flying routine SLOW DOWN, look at the details.As we all know in aviation (or any mode of transport) the devil is in the details and the one overlooked critical item is often the first link in the accident chain.
FIND A CFI:
if your feel your skills have deteriotated,if your using 3000' of HWV's 4200' runways to land your C-172,if you're uncomfortable in crosswinds,with slow flight or stalls or going into short fields find a competent instructor who's familiar with your machine and get some dual instruction.
I hope everyone has a great summer season, Blue Skys, Scotty
Northeast Airpark’s First Annual Freeze Fest Fly-In
"Due to High Winds forecast our first annual Freeze Fest
is rescheduled to Saturday March 10th@10:30 am"
Northeast Airpark’s First Annual Freeze Fest Fly-In
Well there’s no snow on the runway so we might as well have a party right? Colder temps mean better performance so lets get out and enjoy some chilly weather flying! A little cabin heat makes perfect sense to come on out, and join us at Northeast Airpark’s first annual Freeze Fest Fly-in. We’ll have some hot dogs, burgers and chili to keep the fire going… Don’t worry about Brookhaven’s landing fee, (what do you get for $7.00 anyways besides some good deer watching on 15-33? Please check this link to see how you can help with this) we will absorb it as long as you get some go go juice from our newly installed state of the art fueling station. A 10 gallon minimum purchase is your ticket in… Join us on Sat March 10th, 2012 for some food, fun and flying. Call the airpark for more details.
Call To Action, Calling all Pilots!
When comparing landing fee requirements as per local airports on long island, Brookhaven Airport (KHWV) ranks among the highest. Furthermore, there are no airport services on location to justify such a fee when compared to existing conditions at neighboring fields. The fee increases over the years are directly responsible for diminishing traffic to and from this once great aviation community. It can be great again, and with your voices of concern we can fight these unjustified increases to afford the general aviation community a place with open arms instead of above average fees for lesser services when compared to neighboring airports.
Please send emails to Supervisor Lesko here. http://www.brookhaven.org/Live/BrookhavenElectedOfficials/Supervisor.aspx
The rest of the Brookhavens Elected officials are listed here.
Brookhaven airport is District 6.

Fosters Farm Fly Inn
Saturday, September 18th, the squadron of three Cubs,the Super Decathalon and the beautiful Stearman based at NEAP flew out to Fosters Farm (a private grass strip) in Sagaponack NY. It is a very short strip, about 1800' with wires and a tree at one end giving you about 1600' usable runway landing to the north. That being said it is beautifuly maintained and the owner made us feel very welcome. Some great vintage aircraft showed up including a J-5 Piper Cub (seats three) and a Ryan PT-17. Also there was an antique steam engine show and I must say only in the Hamptons can you find a porta-potti with air-conditioning. It was a great day out and i encourage any NEAP pilots to sent me a short story and pics of any place cool you flew into that you want to share.
I hope everybody got a lot of flying done this summer.
I just wanted to share a unique opportunity I had with all our Northeast Airpark Pilots. I have had the chance to fly a 1947 Mooney Mite. It lives in Hangar 5 at NEAP if anyone wants to see this unique aircraft. It is all wood,has a 65HP Lycoming engine,full manual mechanical retractable landing gear,flaps and a full flying tail. It was basically Al Mooney's first design and will cruise well over 120mph on 4gph and really is a pleasure to fly.
While I have everyone attention I just want to mention the hurricane pins on the doors. These are the vertical pins on the doors that slide into the concrete floor. please ensure they are "up and locked" for normal use as with some of them if you lower them and try to open the door it will jam the door. These are only to be used in a hurricane situation and it's imperative that they are retracted before the door is opened.
Blue Skys to all, Scotty
