We salute the 55 youngsters who became certified
Young Eagles at our Sunday, April 22nd Lincoln Park
Airport event. Many thanks to our seven Chapter 501
pilots who flew them on a perfect day with the help
of the 10-plus members of our ground crew aided by,
thank you, volunteers Dawn and Allison Ross,
Diane Sandow, Allen T. Dunn, Bill Leavens,
and Rudy Steinthal.
The Green Residential Home brought several students
from Ringwood to go flying. A carload of kids from the
Phillip M. Costello Preparatory Academy,
drove all the way up from Tabernacle, down in the
pine barrens, to go flying with us. Costello Prep,
same as the Green Residential Home, is operated by
the New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission. The
homes give teenage violators a second chance... nine
to twelve months living in a structured educational
environment with no fences. The Young Eagles
flights are not only a reward to the kids for good
behavior, but also help to provide exposure to a
wide range of work opportunities that could lie
ahead for them.
The Young Eagles event was overseen by our Y.E.
Coordinator Allen Dunn. Registration and certificate
production was handled by Dawn and Allison Ross,
and Diane Sandow. Matt Lamm directed aircraft parking.
Passenger and parents safety-escorting on the ramp
was done by Allen F. Dunn, Greg Dwyer, Bill Leavens,
Bob Menier, Lee McQuade, Don Provost and Jon Seibert.
Linda Scully and the staff at Aero Safety Training
flight school welcomed visiting parents and kids to
show them the starting point for learning to fly.
