Hello everyone! For those that weren’t at the last SNP, here’s the info. Every Saturday night, someone from the ATC Education Group controls an airport, while the rest do touch-and-goes.
This week we will be flying in Bob Hoover’s backyard, Zamparini Field (KTOA). Robert Anderson “Bob” Hoover is a legendary air show pilot, United States Army Air Forces fighter pilot, USAF and civilian test pilot, flight instructor, and aviation record-setter. He used to fly out of there, he has a hangar there where he based his P-51 out of and he lived in Palos Verdes Estates just to the west of the airport in the later portion of his life.
I was inspired to feature this airport after watching this video by FlightChops and I would highly recommended you check out Bob Hoover’s legendary engine-out aerobatics routine, very cool!
Also just a side note, if you’re wondering why @Cbro4 isn’t posting this, he’s a bit under the weather. 🙂
Time: June 16th, 2018, 2100Z
NOTAM: ATC will be open from 2100Z to 2200Z. Feel free to stop by at any time and do some touch-and-goes. Please only use the Cessna C172 or Cirrus SR22.
