    Congrats, to Matt Willis on joining the ranks of taildragger nuts.  He found out what his feet are for. No more just "driving" a skyhawk around.

    Congratulate Ginny on earning her commercial certificate. She has been flying for many years with some ups and downs, but never lost her love of flying. Now she can be paid for it.

        East Hill is known for our well kept equipment. In order to keep our maintenance up to a good standard the board has decided to raise rates on aircraft and instructors $1.00 an hour each. We still strive to keep flying as close to cost as possible, but safety comes first.
