PRESIDENT’S REPORT — Josh Kleen:
Just before the meeting started we found out Bruce Lemone had passed away yesterday. Bruce is an
active member and avid Warbird flyer. When funeral arrangements are known they will be passed on. A
moment of silence was held in Bruce’ memory.
AMA and FAA test requirements are still being worked out. This is expected to be a no fail test. It is our
plan to give this test as part of a future meeting when requirements are finalized.
