In addition, Professor Neal has joined us as our Faculty Advisor. We all are grateful for Professor Falcon's contributions to the 20's over the last several decades. Finally, Tyler Hernandez has joined us as replacement Treasurer in place of Richard Bandy, who joined an airport operations job in Ventura.
As we finish up the ADS-B upgrades on our planes, 71B is tentatively scheduled to finish up midweek. It will have a loaner radio in it while ours is in the avionics shop for repairs, however the transmit sidetone is inoperative. We hope to have our radio returned back to us within a month. Meanwhile, 384 finally got its replacement radio installed today.
A final mention that plane availability this weekend is tight as the MX shop finishes 100hr and 50hr maintenance on 8LP and 384. N49280 is tentatively off the schedule due to intermittent alternator issues.
The hangar has been cleaned up and the office air conditioner hooked up, please enjoy the facilities and keep them clean. Note that the Frasca 131 simulator is also hooked up and ready for use. Want to know how to use it? Ask your CFI and they'll be happy to show you. Note that at this time, no person may perform maintenance on the Frasca 131 without permission from the President.
Since January 1st, we have been tracking all billing live in ScheduleMaster. After flying the aircraft and returning to postflight (see attachment), billed amounts will now show (either $81/hr or $105/hr), and your live balance will be visible to you. These live balances include balances from before 1/1/17.
You will no longer get an statement or invoice from Nanci, instead all of your billing information will be in Schedulemaster (My Account > My Statement). Dues, fuel reimbursements, and other items will be visible here. Continue to submit fuel receipts as you have.
Payment Methods have changed.
eCheck payments, and credit card transactions in Schedulemaster are active now. PayPal payments can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org (convenience fee of 2.9% + $0.30). eCheck processing is 0.7%. And as always, we accept checks or money orders.
These changes are due to payment processing system changes to allow us to have online, instantly viewable running balances and payment options integrated into ScheduleMaster. These changes allow us to be more efficient as an organization and help you keep track of your balance better.
Our Club Meetings are now the same day as the plane wash (Morning plane wash at the wash rack), noon Club Meeting at the main terminal building 2500 Cunningham Avenue.
