Hello Vic,

Would the closest airport to fly into be Regina (Bonanza type aircraft)?

Do you have a course syllabus?

Yes Regina is the closest large airport, it is thirty miles from Disley. I do have a grass runway one half mile easy of Disley, CDS2 and it is listed in the Canada Flight Supplement as well as COPA web sight.

The Fabric covering workshop is an intensive 3 day course on general fabric covering techniques using the Stewart System Products. The course begins promptly at 0830 hrs. with a discussion of safety issues and general fabric covering. The course is designed to present the methods of covering in discussion form followed immediately by practical hands on experience for each step. The participant actually covers a control surface from the preparation stage all the way through the completion of spraying on color.

Hello Vic,

I'll make some phone calls tomorrow and likely will sign up. Regina should work as the airport of entry. We could jump up to Disley, but mud season and rental cars could be a bit of a problem. I'll let you know when we sign up and ask about local lodging etc.

Nice to here from you. Lots of snow here right now and it just does not want to warm up. We have twice as much snow as normal this winter. Last winter no snow at all. The runway here in Disley should be good by then. I have been keeping it open most of the winter. The soil is sandy and never really gets muddy. When you are ready for more info just give me a call.
