Welcome to the
Birthplace of Aviation
Chapter President Jack Lautzenheiser made his final flight on July 7, 2014. A great friend to all who knew him, Jack loved people as much as he did airplanes. Under his leadership as Ohio chapter President (and he would acknowledge with his wife Pat's continuous support), the chapter received the SWPC Outstanding Chapter award for 2012.
Jack's obituary can be read at: www.chiles-lamarth.com

We are a very friendly, sociable, family-oriented chapter of the SWPC. Spouses, children, and grand-children are welcome at all activities. Our fly-ins are known for fun, food, fellowship and flying. They are held usually the second Sunday of each month, but rescheduled for Mothers' and Fathers' days, and sometimes held on Saturdays. To find out the time and location each month click on the MEETINGS button above. Not all members are active pilots, and you don't have to own a Short Wing Piper airplane, either. Come to one of our monthly fly-ins and get to know us. You won't be a stranger for long.
I laugh more than other Men,
I look up and see more than they.
I know how the clouds feel,
What it's like to have the blue in my lap,
To look down on Birds,
To feel freedom in a thing called the Stick.
Who but I
Can slice between God's billowed legs,
And feel them laugh and crash with His step?
Who else has seen the unclimbed peaks?
The rainbow's secret?
The real reason birds sing?
Because I fly,
I envy no man on earth.
