A lot of good things are happening this year with Chapter 60. last months program was a double header with GPS program from Rockford and riveting by ex Ė Blackhawk Tec aviation instructor Graham Smith. Both where extremely informative. If you missed these, donít miss the upcoming program at Palmyra airport. The programs are getting better and stronger each month.
