Local Flight Club Taking Off
To Promote Sport Of Flying
BV DORI C. CJUR(JAML!S
Area flying enthusiasts should
soon have plenty of opportunity lo
lake off and explore the skies from
the cockpit of an aircraft.
Skip Davis of Point Windward,
Shallotte. is president of a new flight
club. Coastal Carolina Aero Club,
which will promote the sport of Hy
ing in the South Brunswick Islands
The club was formed about three
months ago and presently has a
membership of 16 people, three of
whom already own planes. It was
this group that pooled funds recendy
to purchase a two-seat, single-en
gine, Cessna 150 training aircraft for
use in flying lessons and community
Davis, a doctor w ho has been fly
ing for four years, said the club is
not commercial in nature.
"The idea is to promote safe, af
fordable Hying in ihis area. Wc have
no plans to charter llighis or go inio
commercial ventures," said Davis.
"II somebody needs to he flown
to a hospital in an emergency situa
tion, we could do that." he said. "Wc
want to provide community service,
as well as leach people how to oper
ate the plane."
Davis said he researched charters
and bvlaws of other clubs, including
the Aircraft Owners and Pilots
Association, of which he is a mem
ber, and the Chapel Hill and Lenoir
"We tried to fashion our constitu
tion along those lines," he said
The club also nas an instructor in
its membership, Martin Nordcnslam,
who teaches ground school flying
lessons through Brunswick Comm
Once the plane purchase is final
ized by the club, Davis said that
Nordcnslam will begin teaching at
lual llighi lessons lo those BCC slu
dcnis and any other eommunity
members who show interest.
The plane in question is still in
West Virginia with its present own
er. but Davis said he expects the
plane to be delivered to Ocean Isle
Beach Airport next week.
"The day we get the plane here,
the lessons will start," said Davis.
"Our main goal right now is to help
the community with affordable
prices and safe op|K>riuniues to 11 y,
and in turn they will help our club
grow and progress."
"We're progressing quite well,"
he said. "I'm surprised at the
amount of interest we've received,
bul it's been encouraging."
Davis welcomes calls from indi
viduals interested in learning more
