Dear Aeronca Aviators Club Members,
By now many of you have heard the news that Robert Szego, President of the Aeronca Aviators Club, has passed away. Robert had spent many years bringing together this network of Aeronca aircraft owners and loved every minute of it- from writing and editing the newsletters, to planning fly-ins, but most importantly connecting members worldwide and advocating to keep every plane possible flying.

Due to Roberts death, club activities have been temporarily suspended while we we worked on a succession plan to merge the Aeronca Aviators with the National Aeronca Association. Please bear with us as we complete the transition to continue to serve the Aeronca community with as minimal disruption as possible.

Sincerely,Dvora Szego (Robert's daughter)

New Champ from American Champion
The New Champ is now being delivered! The January and April 2006 issues included pictures and details of the new American Champion LSA Champ (right).

A great deal of confusion has been caused by the newly issued Control Cable AD. We try to make sense of it here.
Updated with new information 1/31/2006.

The Aeronca Store is now open - you can order T-shirts, hats and some of our Publications using our Secure Server.
