Leigh Coates brings her Bell helicopter to our Marin 99s meeting again on March 25 . . .

. . . which makes one awesome backdrop for our group photo. Thanks Leigh! We had yet another great meeting, which included ‘around the room’ introductions and updates on flying and lesson status. Everyone brought yummy dishes for our potluck brunch. Sue had plenty of coffee brewing.


  • Santa Rosa 99s is having their Aircraft Proficiency Excursion (APE) on April 8th. Contact Nancy Hayssen at nhayssen@gmail.com or 707/280-4678 for more information. (See flyer below)
  • CB Skyshare had their second monthly Planes and Coffee today on March 25 from 8:30 – 12 noon, where they served coffee and donuts and had an assortment of classic cars from the 51-50 Foundation. They were also selling 100 LL for a .35 cent fuel discount for fuel truck and self-serve the whole day.
  • Gnoss Field will be having a EAA Young Eagles Day on April 15. Contact Ken Mercer if you are able to volunteer as a pilot or help as ground crew.
  • Marielle had the following CalDart (California Disaster Response Team) events to report:

Angwin DART – Disaster Airlift Response Team- will be doing its annual exercise on the morning of Saturday, May 13. DART is an organization of volunteer pilots who offer to help their community in time if crisis. Our mission is to fly in human and/or material ressources to devastated areas, and/or fly out individuals who need to be evacuated.

For its annual exercise, Angwin DART is looking for service requests from neighboring airports. The request could be that we fly something or someone into your airport (anything – use your imagination!), or that we fly someone out of your airport (this is an occasion to offer a free flight to a friend). 

Now, if you’re a pilot and you’d prefer to actually fly one of these missions, you are more than welcome to join us in that task!

Whatever you want to do would be appreciated. And it’ll add to the fun!
