Minnesota Senator Recognizes the Wings Across America 2008 Adventure
Pilot #329 (Steve M) gets a card from MN state Senator Kathy Sheran recognizing his participation on the WAA-08 adventure. The hand written card reads:
I just wanted to drop you a quick note of congratulations to you for your Wings Across America project. I think it is truly admirable when people think of creative ways to connect us as a nation and fellow hobbyists. Congrats,
That's awesome that Senator Sheran took the time to write Steve and congratulate him on his participation in the Wings Across America 2008 adventure. And what a cool way to make our lawmakers aware of our hobby in a good light.
I am humbled by the support and level of enthusiasm our pilots have provided throughout this adventure. It is wonderful to put a positive light on model aviation in the four years we have been traveling across the US. In these times of new FAA regs and unsafe acts by RC pilots being reported in the news, it is great to have to able to show our lawmakers and others who may not know what model aviation is about.
