Order of Daedalians honors, as its Founder Members, all WW I aviators who
were commissioned as officers and rated as military pilots no later than the
Armistice on 11 November 1918. It perpetuates their names as the first to
fly our country's airplanes in time of war. The Order's membership of
commissioned, warrant and flight officer military pilots and WASPs, with its
worldwide network of Daedalian Flights and its comprehensive awards program,
supports the military services and other aerospace activities. The Awards
and Scholarship Programs of the Order and Foundation encourage patriotism,
integrity, and good character in our nation's youth; military careers as
commissioned pilots; safety of flight, and excellence in the performance of
military duties. The Daedalian Foundation's scholarship program also
promotes study in aerospace disciplines. For more, visit the
Order of Daedalians web site.

Solutions (APS) Upset Training: For many years, the
term Upset Recovery Training has been an unofficial industry
buzz-phase identifying a highly specialized discipline of
advanced flight training. Depending upon the reference or
who you talk to, Upset Recovery Training can be limited to a
narrow spectrum of docile non-stalled out-of-the-ordinary flight
conditions or can encompass the entire spectrum of emergency
maneuver situations from classic power-off stalls to extreme
unusual attitudes to wake turbulence to fully developed
aerodynamic spins. APS specializes in All-attitude Upset
Recovery instruction to enhance air safety.
MOAA Spring Golf
Tournament: We're invited to play on 23 April.
