EAA’s wraps up its successful 2006 Sport Pilot Tour this Saturday, December 9, at Brown Field in San Diego, California. Aviation enthusiasts are invited to come out and see the new, exciting way they can get involved in flying, but with less time and expense. The tour, on the heels of an extremely successful stop at Flabob Airport last week, will once again feature informative sessions and exhibits, interactive forums, and some of the brand-new, ready-to-fly light-sport aircraft on the market today.

Between last week’s Flabob event and this week’s San Diego tour stop, EAA’s Ron Wagner has been visiting a number of Southern California EAA chapters. As reported earlier this week, he attended Chapter 14’s annual awards dinner on Sunday night. On Monday, Wagner met with Chapter 1116 members, then Tuesday brought Wagner together with the members of Murrieta Chapter 1279 at French Valley Airport. Half of that chapter’s members have built, or are currently building, their own aircraft. Collectively, they’re building a Pietenpol.

Wednesday evening Wagner met with North San Diego’s Vernon Payne Chapter 286, and Thursday he reconvened with Chapter 14 members to make final plans for the Saturday Sport Pilot Tour stop there. Friday night Wagner said he would host a social gathering for all area Chapter leaders at Montgomery Field in San Diego.

“This certainly is a great opportunity for me to be able to meet with so many wonderful EAA members,” Wagner said. “The tie that binds us all is a strong passion for aviation, but visits like these verify again and again that EAA is really all about its people. No matter where you go, when you’re with EAA members it’s like visiting with old friends.”
