Welcome to Vintage AirMail, the newest Member benefit from the EAA Vintage Aircraft Association (VAA). I hope you enjoy our all new Vintage AirMail e-Newsletter. The intent here is to keep our membership up to date on the goings on of the Vintage Airplane movement during the off month, when the magazine is not being distributed.
Thanks for being a Member. I want to also mention here that our newly revamped Vintage Aircraft web-site (www.VintageAircraft.org) has now also been officially launched. Please stop by and check it out, and be sure to provide us with any feed-back you care to offer. It is always welcome!
Be assured that we carefully listen to the Membership and their concerns. For example, when the “Mystery Airplane” feature disappeared from Vintage Airplane magazine a good number of you made it known to us that you really missed that feature and asked that we bring it back.
So, when you get your April Vintage AirMail newsletter look for the “Mystery Airplane” feature in there and submit your answers to us per the directions. I know a lot of you took pride in regularly providing us data on mysterious aircraft, so please feel free to resume submitting this data for all to enjoy. Please contact VAA Director Wes Schmid at 414-771-1545 to submit your idea for the Mystery Plane. Thanks for participating!
I want to thank VAA Board member Ron Alexander for his efforts on the Vintage AirMail newsletter. Many thanks are also due to those responsible for the new website design & site content.
The design work was a group effort that includes VAA Volunteer Earl Nicholas, VAA Director Tim Popp, and our Executive Administrator Theresa Books. I want to invite any of the Membership to feel free to provide us with relevant and timely information for both the Vintage AirMail newsletter and the website. We would also love to hear from the Chapter Members and Officers, as well. So let us know what’s going on in your Chapter.
I also need to offer thanks to those members of the VAA Board of Directors who collectively donated the money needed to see the new website designed, developed and launched.
A thanks also goes out to the The Carolinas – Virginia Antique Airplane Foundation (EAA Vintage Aircraft Association Chapter 3) for their very generous donation to this important effort as well. You folks are all awesome, and I hope you all agree that the new website and the Vintage AirMail newsletter will prove to be valued enhancements to the VAA Members’ benefits.
The adventure lives on!
President, EAA Vintage Aircraft Association
P.S. I hope to see you all at AirVenture 2013!
