I just saw an auction on ebay - winner gets 10 000 towards PPL flight training there. It has ended - the winning bid is 6100.
It is a "Mount Sinai Hospital Dream Auction" so I don't know who gets the profits, but I'd assume that the school is ok :)

Here's the link:

I heard LJW on the Unicom frequency the other day, so someone is still flying out of there.

That was very busy place some 10 years ago, hard to find plane on the ground. I beleive that at one time there was 6 C150, 4 C172, 1 PA28-140, 1 PA 28-160 or 161, Turbo Arrow, Seminole, Navajo.....
There was Seneca in maintenance hanger , brown colour.....

It used to be a great place. I remember hanging around on weekends, talking with the old guys, and getting some nice rides in some fun old planes. Really friendly people and good instructors. It was a wonderful place to learn and to be social. Haven't been in for a few years, though. Maybe someone who has can give an update.

Does anyone know if SP, RL or PB still work there? It used to be a busy school in the 90's. I think Proffit took all the business with him. To bad really.

SP and RL are still there PB left years ago. The 337 and PA-31 still belong to the school and the senior instructors fly them on contract work for Optech. The school is still really busy. Booking an A/C there is getting alot harder now that the better weather has arrived.


...and Flap, the place hasn't changed much at all....still a great place to hear some good aviation stories and hitch a ride in one of the old birds around the place.
