Here is a personal message from Bill:
Happy New Year to all of you who fly ultralights and light sport aircraft in WA state, and in nearby locals. My purpose in sending this email is to let you know about a new business that will hopefully soon be opening in Eastern Washington. So if you’re on the Wet (West) side you can pretty much ignore this.
But for those in Central-Eastern Washington, North Eastern Oregon, and Western Idaho (especially the powered parachute and light sport airplane crowd) let me introduce myself. My name is Bill Nelson, I live in Prosser, WA, and I am developing a new enterprise called Skystriders Light Sport Aviation LLC. My plans are to provide light sport service, instruction, Discovery Flights and rides, annual inspections, flight reviews, and Six Chuter specific sales and service to current pilots and to those who would like to get into our sport. Now if you already have someone providing such services for you please know that I’m not interested in trying to steal you away for myself. But for new and prospective pilots who don’t have someone to provide any of these services, I am available.
Now before you get too excited about a Six Chuter rep. in Eastern Washington, let me say that while I already do represent Six Chuter, have built my own SLSA trainer, and have been through the 120 hour training for Light Sport Mechanics down at Rainbow Aviation in CA, I still need to finish my CFI in PPC’s. I have my CFI in Light Sport Airplanes so if you need instruction in your own plane, or a Biennial Flight Review, I can help. But my hope is to center my business around PPC’s and that will require a PPC CFI and the add-on module for PPC’s at Rainbow (which I’ll get in May). So this email, as much as anything, is just to let you know that such services are coming, and hopefully by this next summer I’ll be in full operation.
Now if you want to know more about me and Skystriders, please take a moment to check out my web page at www.skystriders.com. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And I especially would like to hear from you in a reply to this note if you would like for me to take you off this mailing list. Or, if you know of any pilots who aren’t a member of EAA UL Chapter 127, and who might need my services, or if you know of someone who is interested in getting into our sport, I would appreciate your sending me their email, or you’re telling them about me and sending them to my web site. One way or another I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.
