KBVY Beverly Regional Airport Beverly, Massachusetts, USA September 14, 2019

So you like the “feeling-of-flying” that driving an Aston gives you?  Then you are going to love the event that our member Matt Beaulieu has planned for us from 10am-2pm on Saturday September 14.  This is your chance to take the controls of a light aircraft (under professional supervision) for a “discovery flight.”  Costs?  You will pick-up your brunch check directly, and the club has subsidized our individual 15-minutes-of-flying down to $40/head for those taking the controls (passengers fly free).  As aviators can be as young as 12 years old, kids are welcome:  think of the bragging rights they will have when back at school next month.  No previous experience is needed, just a thirst for new sensations.  After reading more details below, let me know if I can add you to the list of attendees.

Location

FAA Identifier: BVY
Lat/Long: 42-35-02.9000N 070-54-58.1000W
42-35.048333N 070-54.968333W
42.5841389,-70.9161389
(estimated)
Elevation: 107.3 ft. / 32.7 m (surveyed)
Variation: 16W (1985)
From city: 3 miles NW of BEVERLY, MA
Time zone: UTC -4 (UTC -5 during Standard Time)
Zip code: 01915

It all starts with a get-ready-to-fly brunch at the C.K. Pearl restaurant in Essex MA.  We will exchange our expectations of flying while enjoying CKP’s simple, yet elegant, traditional fare.  The restaurant overlooks the scenic Essex River.  If the weather-gods cooperate, we will sit outside on the deck and bask in the morning’s sunshine and warm breezes.

After our brunch and mimosas, we will drive the twisty and scenic back-roads for 20 minutes, ending-up at Beverly Airport.  Once there, we will park on the apron at the Avier flight school.  Avier was founded by Matt’s brother, Paul, who will be on-hand to look after us.

Two Piper Archer aircraft will be at our disposal:

On each flight, a professional instructor will take one or two AMOC members up, depending on the mix of those wishing to pilot and those wishing to passenger.  The instructor does the landings and take-offs. You get the controls once the plane is level and safe.

The view of Cape Ann from aloft will be spectacular.

While waiting for your flight, you can grab a light refreshment and continue your conversations with other members outside on the patio or in the lounge.  For those desiring diversion, Matt is arranging entertaining video clips to be streaming in the background.

As an optional bonus, if the flying bug really bites you after your discovery flight, additional flying experiences will be available on the day at an added cost (eg. tour of Boston, flying in a larger Cirrus plane).

Come and make some high altitude memories to cap-off your summer.

In Memory of Joyce Nixon

 

 

Joyce Nixon, beloved wife of deceased husband Chuck, recently passed away peacefully in her sleep on August 16. Both Joyce and Chuck were longtime members of the Aston Martin Owners Club since 1966.  Known for their beautiful Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark III, both Chuck and Joyce were active racers of their Aston Martin.  Joyce volunteered her time as Editor, publisher and distributor of the AMOC East publication for many years. They created and ran the annual Aston Martin East Coast meet in Limerock Ct. for 10 years.  This event has turned into the largest annual Aston Martin car event in the US. A trophy was created recently for the recognition of their dedication while members of the club. It will be presented annually in appreciation of the dedicated member who is invaluable to the success of the club. This years recipient was awarded to Northeast Area Rep Malcolm Burwell.  The video of this presentation can be viewed on the Facebook site of Phil Sudenfield. Joyce was able to listen to this video and was very appreciative of this recognition for her and Chuck. Unfortunately Chuck passed away 2 weeks before the trophy presentation.  She had a amazing talent for growing beautiful indoor plants and outdoor flowers.  She also had a love for animals including her amazing life-like aquariums and colorful finches.  Both she and Chuck loved their cockatiel named Sam who lived for many years. They were both very active members of Phoenix Landing which is a adoption and education center for parrots.  Their pride and joy was their parrot Paulie who gave them many years of happiness.  At night Paulie slept in his beautiful cage (palace) that Chuck had built for him.  Chuck did beautiful finish carpentry as a hobby.  During the day Paulie was outside his cage and followed Joyce and never let her out of his site.  He gave much happiness to Chuck and Joyce for many years.   He is currently being well taken care of at the Phoenix Landing.  Joyce will always be remembered as a gracious and generous friend to all who knew her.  Her wonderful spirit will be sorely missed.
