Happy New Year Pilots!

Wow, it's great to see the New Year's fireworks lighting up the SPA sky to herald in the new year of 2021. It's been a rough year for many with the lock-down and virus making life difficult. We can hope that 2021 has better things in store for us. This is certainly likely to be the case here at St. Paul Airlines.

Mike has released the initial flights for his Bomber Group Project, and we've added some helicopter flying to take our minds off the frustrations of the still somewhat buggy MSFS. I'm now trying to learn (and configure my hardware) for various helicopter models - as if I didn't already have enough on my plate.

Larry will begin hosting his multi-player flight and "social hour" on Wednesday January 6th, and regularly every Wednesday afterwards. This consists of about 1.5 hours of airport-hopping and casual conversation with fellow pilots without the official ATC protocol. It's great fun, and pilots often join in just to share in the conversation even if they're not flying. So, please check this out and get to know your fellow pilots. Larry and I are both regulars who will be there pretty much every Wednesday night, and we hope to see some additional regulars also join in the fun. Expect to see more information about this in the next few days.

Happy New Year and Happy flying,

John
