      60th Anniversary Skylarks to OSH (2018)   09/13/2017

      I am requesting that members interested in going to OSHKOSH next year and participating in group parking or camping for the Skylark Association please post to our survey thread:   If we get at least 15 people that say they want to go I will approach the EAA and request reserved parking for our Club. So start thinking about your plans for next year!   Erik

Welcome to our new Club President!

This announcement is no longer active

Erik Hoopes

I am happy to report that after my last email, several members have stepped up and offered to help out with our organizational duties and bring some new talent to our club. I am especially pleased to announce our new club President, whom I have personally interviewed and offered the position based on his attitude, knowledge of the 175 airplane, and wonderful level of enthusiasm! Lucas Altepeter brings a fresh outlook on ownership of the 175 to the table, he is an avid flyer of his 175 both on wheels and floats, and has personally experienced the challenges many face in upgrading and keeping their airplanes current for their needs. Lucas is based out of Fairbanks, Alaska, and as such is in the middle of the busiest general aviation operational region in the United States.

I will still be here, providing support for the website and store, and helping out with whatever Lucas and the other new officers may have need of. Lucas will be contacting several of you who have offered help to the club, to discuss how to successfully integrate each of you into the club's current and future needs. It is going to be an exciting time!

I want to thank all of you who have supported the organization throughout the years, and I look forward to watching the club take a new direction with Lucas and become a functional organization which always has its members' best interest at heart and provides great opportunities to make flying and owning the 175 & Skylark models more fun.

Blue Skies Everyone,

Erik Hoopes - Club Founder / (580)-467-0288 / mail@cessna175.org
