Re: After Action Report
I said I probably left someone out that needs to be recognized. Well I forgot to thank Bob & Linda Connor, our Air Boss & Bossett. They own an RV-7 and Bob has been through a clinic at PBF before. They came down from North Little Rock Friday to helped with registration and also acted as a buffer between us & the FAA. Then they came down again on Saturday to provide Air Boss services for us. The FAA decided if CapConn was going to be on duty there was no reason to send anyone else.
Thanks a lot Bob.

We just had one of the best clinics I have been to. There were 29 pilots and a few guest. The weather was very good and the food was excellent. Bad weather across the mid west caused a few cancellations and we missed you guys. Safely flying formation is our goal and we did a lot of it.
I want to congratulate Dean Marvin (Gumby), Dave Romuald (Torque), Frank Brewer (Bogie), and Scott Sundstrom for passing their Wingman check rides. Also David Grover deserves recognition for passing his Flight Lead check ride. FFI Cards are not easy to earn. Good job guys.
We had 3 Red Scary new formation pilots (Brian Freeman, Rajiv Chalasani, & Jim Ivey) solo in 2 ship flights. I hope you continue to progress up the FFI ladder to eventually earn a formation card. You will enjoy the journey.
We need to thank all of the people that made this possible. Doug Hale (airport manager) and his staff did a great job taking care of our every need and allowed us to have full use of their facilities.
The EAA Chapter volunteers are just wonderful. Sara Works our chapter president worked continuously all weekend to be sure we were taken care of and she got some good photos & videos that she will share. Bruce Rogers, Richard Swartz and his lovely wife were the main cooks. They did a fantastic job. A week ago we had a hangar clean up day and there were even more volunteers there . Thanks for the support .
I want to thank Cassandra Shaw, head of the Pine Bluff Transit department for furnishing our bus transportation. The drivers were courteous and on time. We appreciate your help.
Greg Reese (Greese) our check pilot and all up flight lead came a long way to help & provide guidance when needed. Thank you to the Flight Leads & Safety Pilots too. You came at your own expense and didn't complain about what ever flight assignment you were given. The FFI family is better off for your effort.
I know I left out someone, so forgive me.
