Congratulations to Charlie Morris and his father! Our Plane of the Week is Charlie's dad's 1946 Aeronca Champ! Charlie has this to say: "It was my grandfathers and he bought it in the 70’s. My grandfather and his best friend took everyone for rides in it they could and it is a very well known tail number in our area because of it. My dad soloed in it when he was a kid, and has been flying for over 30 years now and I soloed in it when I was 16. We have both continued to try to keep the name going and keep taking people for rides when we can. I have even taken kids for their first airplane rides in it that their parents got to go for their first ride in it with my grandfather and his best friend. The champ means a lot to us and will never leave the family!" ... See MoreSee Less

Charlie never hesitated once when I brought my client with Alzheimer's to visit him when he and a friend were washing the plane. He offered to take her for a ride and she went. She loved it and talked about it for days...she has Alzheimer's....she still talked about it for days. I bet she will still remember that day if prompted. I love you, son, by another mother. You and your airplane made a difference in my heart that day and every time I think of it. I am proud of you and your family and legacy. Big hugs.

Great Lineage Charlie Morris Randy was very proud of you.

This is awesome! Thanks for choosing this plane. Many in our community have been touched by this plane and the Morris families dedication to their airport and those they accommodate on a daily basis.

It's a good thing to have so many fond memories. Don't blame you for not ever letting the plane go
