Greetings and Salutations!

A while back I wrote periodic newsletters to keep fellow pilots, at and around Arnold Palmer Regional Airport, informed on the happenings and latest news. Somehow, I got sidelined and haven't kept up with them. Keeping up with changed email addresses was a hassle as well. With technology forging ahead at blazing speeds, it's now time to take advantage of medium that, perhaps, will get out to more people.

For those who don't know who I am, allow me to introduce myself. I am Valetta Mowry, a private pilot of 30 years, based at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport located in Latrobe, PA. I have served as the ASN - Airport Support Network Volunteer at the airport for the past several years and regularly attend the Airport Authority monthly meetings. I also proudly masquerade as an FAASTeam Rep.

I have owned a Cessna 172XP for 30 years... somehow, the plane acquired a name - "Mikey". You know you've entered the world of wacky when you start naming your possessions.

Hopefully, I will be able to be informative yet entertaining through my blogs and for those reading this, thanks for joining me.

coming up... the recent changes at the airport: hangars down, hangars up, new flight school, and lots of changes... film at 11

Hi Valetta,
I don't think it's too strange to name your possessions. It's probably a lot easier than naming all the CATS that I have!
Thanks for the BLOG, I think this will be a handy way to keep up with what's hap'n at KLBE.

Thanks for the support, cat-dude/or dudette. Even though you're anonymous, methinks I know who you are.

Very well done Valetta. Good idea to keep the GA informed of what is going on at the airport. If you all need help or support see my staff. We will be more than happy to lend a hand in what we are permitted to do. God Bless.
