Old Rhinebeck Seeks Donations for New Visitor Center

oldrhinebecksign1Clay Hammond posted the following on the Facebook recently. Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is updating their visitor center and restroom facilities, and is seeking community donations to help fund the project. Please consider donating to make this treasure of aviation an even more enjoyable experience for visitors.

“Attention old airplane friends (and anyone else philanthropically minded):

Most of you know that I have been spending the past couple summers in upstate New York serving as a pilot and volunteer at Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, the small museum and airfield where I grew up as a kid. We have been diligently developing a much needed addition to the Aerodrome’s facilities and for this reason I post today; we have in the works a visitor’s center with a gift shop and modern restrooms replacing the existing gift shop and model museum. But we need help…

Due to the generosity of those who know and appreciate what the Aerodrome has to offer, we have met great success with recent aircraft and vehicle restoration projects. Such projects are very important to the collection, but equally as important to the future of the Aerodrome is the comfort of our visitors. While visitors generally comment that they love the show, their number one complaint is the primitive porta-potties down on the airfield, which have been in use since the Aerodrome’s inception in 1959. If you’ve ever visited ORA and had to “go”, then you know exactly of what I speak. The construction of this visitor center will go a long way toward improving our guest’s Aerodrome experience for many years to come through the construction of real bathrooms with flushable toilets and sinks with running water.

Visitor-Center-600x327It is our intent to start construction of this new facility this fall following the completion of the airshow season, so that it can be ready for opening day in June of 2015. In order to meet this deadline, we need to raise $130,000.00 by December 31, 2014. Once that total is met, the Thomas Thompson Trust will provide an additional $20,000 to the project. This is the largest non-flying project we’ve ever attempted, but so vital for the continued success of our air shows that I need the support of every one of my friends to meet this challenge on time. Contributions in any amount are most appreciated, and can be made via credit card or PayPal by visiting our donate page, referenced below. A printable form for checks, money orders, etc. can be obtained at link below also. The Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome is a 501(c)3 entity, and as such, your contributions are fully deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Thanks for reading this far and I hope you will consider personally helping me to see this project come to fruition. While it is more fun to see airplanes be rebuilt and fly again, the infrastructure here at the Aerodrome is almost as, if not more, important for the museum’s long term revitalization and success. Please consider donating today.

Blue skies!”

NPRM To Define Hangar Use Policy

As privately owned (and funded) airports close, and municipally owned airports become the only options available for public use, we will see a continued decline in affordable general aviation facilities, training, and fuel resources. As soon as an airport accepts government funding for improvements, they must abide by the rules set forth by the FAA, good and bad.

Below is a quote from a NPRM from the FAA regarding approved use of hangars. This might not affect you, but it will affect thousands of homebuilders across the country.

“While building an aircraft results in an aeronautical product, the FAA has not found all stages of the building process to be aeronautical for purposes of hangar use. A large part of theconstruction process can be and often is conducted off-airport. Only when the various components are assembled into a final functioning aircraft is access to the airfield necessary.”

Tail On… Temporarily

20140721-200045-72045483.jpg
I put the tail on today in preparation for checking cable runs and interference issues with the rudder and elevator. As seems to always be the case, new problems are found trying to fix old ones. This continues to be a fun and challenging project.
