A big thanks to Jack Hodgson, Jeb Burnside, and Dave Higdon at the Uncontrolled Airpsace podcast (http://www.uncontrolledairspace.com) for their mention of the Hobby Hangar Hop in episode 155.  These guys do a great show and have been for over three years now.  They have mentioned us before – most recently was a mention of our second raffle plane – the 1957 Cessna 172 that we gave to Larry Smith on July 19, 2009.  If you’re a fan of general aviation, then this podcast is a must-listen.  You can find them in iTunes, Zune, or any other podcast aggregator, or you can just download the episodes straight from their website.  You don’t need an iPod to listen to podcasts – you can listen on your computer or any other device that plays mp3 files.

The kwote.me site has been having some problems with their embedded player, so if you don’t see it this time, check again in the future, or download the episode from the UCAP site (our mention starts at about 1:23:22).  Thanks again, UCAP Gang!

The winner of our 2nd annual raffle plane, Larry Smith has picked up N7433A, along with his daughter, and they are safely back at home in Polly Ranch in Friendswood, TX.

Larry’s daughter has taken some flight training a while back but has yet to solo.  The first task of their new plane will of course be to get her trained.  Larry  is a gold certified flight instructor, and teaches at San Jacinto College.

We wish them well with their new plane.  They don’t live very far away, so keep an eye out for N7433A at future Wings & Wheels.  We will try to have them back for the 2009-2010 raffle plane giveaway next year.
