Local Flying
Society Buys
New Airplane
Members of the Flying Club have
achieved pride of ownership and re-
duction in 'flying costs through the
recent purchase of their own plane.
The plane, a 1939 Taylorcraft cabin-
type, was obtained by 16 of the mem-
bers who contributed $28 each, and
has gone a long way towards paying
for itself. The group's flying rates
have been lowered, according to Alan
Bott, '42E, from six to two and one-
half dollars per hour.
Members,most of whom are licensed
pilots, will use the ship to fulfill re-
curring license requirements, to prac-
tice for precision flights and for
pleasure flying. With the skill thus
acquired, the pilots are confident that
they will keep on winning the Na-
tional Intercollegiate flying meets.
Leslie J. Trigg, '41E, new president
of the club, announces that there is
room in the club for a few more
licensed pilots, though others may be
accepted. Those interested are invit-
ed to call.
