While Spring is off to a somewhat cold start, the extended daylight hours have been wonderful. What a windy welcome to Spring April gave us. You know what they say, April showers bring May flowers. We hope that the winds die down this month and we are able to have days filled great weather and lots of flying.
As always at this time of year, look for the birds nesting in your plane. There are several events taking place at the airport this month, so keep an eye out. Read on to hear more about some wonderful members of our Princeton Airport community. And we are excited to have had three students complete their Private Pilot’s License!
