Past Aircraft (work in progress)

Over the years, we've owned and operated a total of 11 airplanes. The aircraft below faithfully served the post's mission before being sold. Many of them are still operating in the area. Occasionally, we'll see one of them at Billard airport; it's like meeting an old friend.

N704VU - Cessna 150
704VU.jpg

Widely used as a trainer, the Cessna 150 has a reputation for reliability and good flight characteristics. It is forgiving but doesn't coddle the student. Our venerable 150 had flown many Explorers, including some who now serve as post advisors. 4VU was dear to us during the nearly 30 years of service as a primary trainer at Explorer Post 8.
