This is a reminder of the upcoming Gillespie Pilots Association Meeting and will be held at the Gillespie Field Administration/Terminal Building, 1960 Joe Crosson Drive, El Cajon.
Due to all of the recent activity by the anti-airport group A.S.A.P., much of the discussion will be dedicated to the planning and action by GPA to counter this group. All of our members play an important part in stopping this anti-airport group from causing damage to our airport, whether it be towards an individual pilot, flight schools, or the redevelopment of the 70 acres. We need to protect the valuable asset that we have in our airport, and all its important key components.
Following the GPA meeting at 10:30 a.m., we will be flying kids through our EAA Young Eagles Program. We expect to have about 15 kids flying this month. If you are a pilot, and able to fly some kids, please reply to this email. Thank you in advance for volunteering for this important event!
As always, free coffee and Mary’s Donuts will be served at our meeting. We hope you can make it to this important meeting!
Gillespie Pilots Association
GPA's general membership meetings are typically held the first Saturday of every month at 9:00 a.m. in the Gillespie Field Administration Building, 1960 Joe Crosson Drive, El Cajon, CA 92020. Refreshments are provided, and meetings usually last about an hour (though hangar talk can go on indefinitely afterwards).
Our general meetings are a good place for you to get to know your fellow Gillespie pilots and to find out what's going on at your airport.
