As some of you know, I have become involved in what I think is one of the greatest organizations that exist out there today. Through the wonder of flight, pilots all over the US transport animals, mostly dogs and cats from Rescues that have pulled them from kill shelters to places with waiting list of adaptors waiting for a new friend/family member. By being involved in this program, I have learned of and seen some horrible treatment to innocent animals and I'm doing my part to help as many as I can. This is totally volunteer flying and no pay (except doggie kisses) is received by me. You don't have to be a pilot to participate in the program. They also need ground volunteers, foster homes until the pet can catch the next leg of the flight or be adopted. If you are interested in helping, click the link below and sign up! You won't ever have a better feeling in your heart than saving an animal that has lived an awful life!

And by the way, this organization was started right here in Landrum SC, founded in February 2008 with one pilot doing the right thing. Today there are over 4000 registered pilots doing the right thing with countless volunteers fostering and helping with ground transport!! It's non profit so if you can't be a volunteer, consider a donation to help buy food and transport crates which they do donate to the pilots. It will make you feel good, that's a promise!!

If anyone wants to ride along and help with the fuel cost of the trip or for that matter, sponsor a trip let me know. It's tax deductable.  Have plane, will travel!!

Help save a life!!

In the constant rush of today's world, we all seem to lose contact of our priorities. Read the story of 1000 Marbles and maybe it will help put things back in order!


The Experimental Aircraft Association is an organization that promotes all forms of recreational aviation. It was started in 1953 by a group of individuals in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, who were interested in building their own airplanes. Through the decades, the organization expanded its mission to include antique and classic aircraft, warbirds, aerobatic aircraft, ultralights, helicopters and commercially manufactured aircraft.

This organization brings people together with an interest in recreational aviation, facilitating social interaction and information sharing between aviation enthusiasts. Many of the services that EAA offers provide valuable support resources for those that wish develop and improve various skills related to aircraft construction and restoration, piloting, aviation safety, and aviation education.

EAA is a national organization with local chapters all over the world. Information is shared through various publications, chapter newsletters, websites, air shows, and numerous other programs. .

You don't have to be a pilot or aircraft owner to be a member of EAA. You can find different ways to fulfill your aviation interest, whether it's visiting the world's premier aviation event . . . EAA AirVenture Oshkosh or participating in EAA's Young Eagles (which has given one million kids an airplane ride.)
