Dickstein. "So he rented a
plane there, got an instructor
and flew around for an hour."
Chai Flyers is not a
charitable organization,
although some members once
donated airplane rides to the
Channel 56 Auction. "A few
years ago, during the Walk for
Israel we hired a pilot with a
banner mainly as moral sup-
port for the walkers," Dicks
tein said. "And every year for
Chanukah we have a party
with all our families and
socialize together. It used to
be that everyone knew
everyone, but now we are get-
ting larger." The Chai Flyers
doesn't actively seek out new
members, but interested
Jewish pilots are always
welcome. Dickstein said there
must be a similar group of
Jewish pilots somehwere in
the United States, but to date
they haven't heard of any.
A continuing discussion
among members is whether
to fly across Lake Michigan to
Wisconsin or around the lake
to Chicago. "The same pilot
may give you a diffeent
answer each time," said
Schwartz. "It depends on how
much you trust your engine

that day. With grandchildren
aboard you'll fly to Chicago.
If you've got four strong
young men aboard, you'll fly
over the water."
The standard joke among
members is the $50 ham-
burger. "We often fly
somewhere for lunch to eat a
good hamburger that's 25
cents cheaper," said Schwartz.
"Only it takes $50 in gas to
get there."

"You can hardly fly to
Jackson, Chicago or
Muskegon for $75 to $100,"
said Cooper. His plane, cruis-
ing at 170-180 miles per hour,
will average 17-18 miles per
gallon. Larger planes may get
15 m.p.g. Aviation fuel at the
Oakland-Pontiac Airport,
where the members base
their planes, runs from $1.50
to $1.75 per gallon. Cooper
said an older airplane might
cost $10,000-$15,000, while a
new single-engine aircraft
that could easily fly to
Florida in five or six hours
could run $250,000 and up.
The price can be steep, but
for the Chai Flyers the
socializing is great . . . and so
is the food.
