Hello and welcome to September! The VAPOR Rally was a great success despite a smaller turnout than hoped. (A few competitors got stuck in Carp with the air show closures) but we had a great time. The First place winners were Glen Black and Fouad Menassa of the Cornwall Flying Club, although both men live in the Belle Province! Special thanks to our sponsors this year, Classic Aircraft, OAS, V.I.P Pilot Supplies, Greg Michaud, COPA, Dave Kelk and The Ottawa International Airport Authority. We flew, ate, laughed and celebrated John Quarterman's birthday. (John is one of the founding members of VAPOR) Next year you should look at competing for fabulous prizes and fun. Coming up in this edition: new ground schools starting, some new jobs for OAS alumni, workshops and much more! If you have any items of interest, please contact Teri or Donna in dispatch for print, or Piotr Dobrowolski for website news and contributions.

Night: Well, the days are getting shorter so it is time to make sure those night ratings are current. It really inhibits the flying time after the impending time change if you don't have that rating!
Fuel Prices: one of our fuel costs jumped from 91.5 to 1.279 in just one delivery! This has caused an increase in rental costs to the pilot. Our apologies, but the good news is that Mr. Forbes (the very rich one) has predicted a return to $45USD per barrel within a year. In spite of these cost hikes it would seem that Diamond Aircraft is on the right track with the Diesel powered DA-42 and DA-40. The other big fuel question is the future of 100LL: it's a target of the environmental movement due to the lead content and the industry is working on a substitute. (as it has been replaced in automobiles) hopefully the “Boffins” will come up with a solution. If it all sounds a little depressing, don't worry, this is a resilient industry and solutions will be found!
