Roy Thorton

September 29th, 2017

I am sorry to report the passing, on September 25th, of Roy Thorton. Roy was a great supporter of our sport and particularly the Kansas City Aerobatic Club. He was a wonderful inspiration and mentor to all who knew him. Roy’s obituary can be found in the September 28th edition of the Kansas City Star and on the McGilley Funeral Home website. Our hearts and prayers are with his wife, Jan and family.

Below is a short letter from Roy’s wife, Jan.

John Wittenborn, Kansas City Aerobatic Club

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you of Roy’s passing on Sunday, the 25th of September, at St. Joseph Hospital. He fought a short but critical battle with congestive heart failure for the last couple of months but he was not able to overcome the odds against him. He passed quietly Sunday afternoon.

The obituary will be in the Kansas City Star on Thursday, September 28th. The visitation will be on Saturday, September 30th at 1:00 p.m. at McGilley’s Funeral Home followed by the service at 2:00. There will be a graveside service at Mt. Moriah Cemetery following the visitation and service and a reception at McGilley’s Funeral Home following the graveside service. There will be plenty of food and everyone is invited. Roy loved a good time with his friends and family and we hope to visit with as many of you as possible who can attend.

Love to you all,

Aces High Contest

August 21st, 2017

Hello everyone. Just a note to remind you of the Aces High contest at Newton Ks.(KEWK) on September 9th & 10th.
I got the following note from David Marten, contest director:

Are you ware of any IAC 15 pilots heading to Newton, KS for our 2017 ACE’s High Contest? With the pre-registration system down we’re having trouble getting decent estimates on how many pilots are competing.
2017 will be a Power-only contest as the USAFA Glider Team is not attending this year.
I’d appreciate your ‘best-guess’ and ask your members to please RSVP to davemarten77@gmail.com or give me a call at 605-390-8044
We’re also looking for another Judge. If any of your guys are interested we’ll reimburse lodging expenses.

Thanks,
Dave Marten
IAC 119 President / Contest Director

Anyone planning to participate or who could help with the contest, give please give David a call or send him a note.

The next IAC15 meeting will be September 25th.

Playday Reminder

July 20th, 2017

Hello everyone. Just a note to remind you of the play day at IXD, New Century Air Service FBO on the East side of the airport; this Saturday, the 22nd of July. The airspace NOTAM is published for 8am to 6pm. I’d like to get response from those who might be interested in flying so I can plan accordingly. It’s forecast to be the hottest day of the year so an early show for flying would probably be in order. So, please respond if you plan to attend Saturday.
