2010 Pedal Plane

MRockwell's picture

Hello All!

Starting a new thread for this year's Pedal Plane.  If you do a search, you can find the thread I first started in 2008, but not too many pictures are there.  But that's OK, you can go to http://www.freewebs.com/glenndalepedalplane/ and see pictures of the past five years of planes.

I began building pedal planes as a charity project for my pilot's club.  Each year we have an event to raise money for SMA Support, with airplane rides, kids activities, warbird rides, and a pedal plane raffle.  I wanted to give back, so I combined my joy of flying and my profession of woodworking to come up with a great idea.

Last year was a slow year, only $510 was raised through the pedal plane raffle, but over $10,000 was raised through the whole event.  I want this year to be better.  Breaktime's own IBEWChuck was the winner last year, way toi go Chuck!

Before shipping Chuck's plane off, I had a little "Gathering of the Pedal PLanes"  Four out of the five made it, which was pretty cool.  Not as cool as the blue pedal plane being hangered with a P-51 and T-6, but still cool. 

Go check out the website:http://www.freewebs.com/glenndalepedalplane/ and buy a ticket or two.  Thanks.

Mitch, Great Idea! (post #193561, reply #1 of 3)

I went to through the link and was pretty darn impressed with the cause and the craftmanship.  I'm going to send a check to you today through the address listed.  I was not able to use the online buy-they couldn't find my shopping cart.  Something about enabling cookies which I thought I had.

Best of luck in the fundraiser.

thanks.

Thanks Calvin!

Turnout at the event has been pretty small this year.  27 tickets sold so far.  Still have 3 hours to go.

I did get your mail with the check, so you're in.  Drawing is at 5 p.m. today.

Take care.

Would be great to be a winner, I've a 10 m.o. grandson that would look good in that plane.  Luck in the draw is not my usual good suit, so happy you rcvd the donation.
