Vintage Volunteers Highligted in EAA’s Sport Aviation Magazine

Congratulations to Vintage volunteers Jim Hornby and Dennis Lange, who are featured in the Volunteer Spotlight of the February issue of EAA’s Sport Aviation magazine! Their combined hours of volunteering totaled close to 2,500 in 2019, due in part to the fact that they are on the EAA AirVenture grounds in the months leading up to and after the convention. Their dedication to the improvement and upkeep of the Vintage grounds make them a huge asset, and they deserve sincere recognition and gratitude. 

You can read more about Jim and Dennis in the Sport Aviation article here, or by clicking the photo on the left.

Owner-Performed Maintenance

By Joe Norris, A&P/IA, DAR, VAA Director

There are many benefits of owning a vintage airplane. One of the most impactful is the low initial entry cost, making vintage aircraft a true gateway to aviation.  But there’s more to the story.  Vintage aircraft owners can further enhance the ownership experience and save some money at the same time by doing some of the maintenance themselves.

VAA Director Named “Champion of the Month”

Contratulations to Vintage Aircraft Association Director Ray Johnson, who has been honored as “Champion of the Month” on the City of Marion (Indiana) website!

Ray began serving on the VAA Board as an Adviser in 2015 before becoming a Director in 2017. Those who have attended EAA AirVenture Oshkosh may know him better as the Chairman of Vintage in Review, a daily program where he choses a select group of aircraft to be featured and interviews the owners, pilots, and mechanics.
