In summer of 2012 we had an Eagle project to paint a compass rose on the apron. We are constantly on the look out for other Eagle Scout candidates that would like to perform other projects at the airport.
One of the most beneficial things to come out of our organizations efforts was the formation of an airport board that included representatives from the city of Delta and members of our group. The city has thrown full support behind the aviation board and as a result we have a new hangar policy that is encouraging the building of new hangars at the airport. If you are considering a spot to hangar your aircraft, we encourage you to look here.
Every year Just Wing In It hosts an aviation camp in the spring and a fly-in breakfast in the fall. In 2013 we adopted a Fly N Golf fly-in but the high winds caused poor attendance.
One of the projects started in summer of 2013 was a golf cart path from the Delta airport to the county golf course, Sunset View. We are hoping that we will be able to house golf carts at the airport so that you can land, load the clubs into a cart and drive to the course. Details are in the works.
This year some of the members were able to enter a float in the Parade of Lights held in Delta. Thanks to Roger Howes to allow his homebuilt to be placed in the parade decorated with lights. Several people commented favorably to seeing it in the parade.
Several of the members this year provided a formation fly over for the fourth of July. Due to the cutbacks claimed by the Air Force, they didn't do the fly over in 2013 so Mel Dutson, Scott Johnson and Tom Herbert took matters into their own hands and provided the fly over. The community enjoyed the fly over and many good comments were shared with us.
Justwinginit took on the pilots lounge remodel in 2014. Remodel included finishing the furnace room and making it available for storage, removing the storage room and expanding into the hall to the hangar. The walls were removed, electrical rerouted, lights added, old wallboard removed, insulation added, sheetrock hung, taped and walls painted.
