. Our new National President of the Pionairs, is Olie Moore, and
his wife Mary, who is our National secretary sends us this bio -
We live in Etobicoke a suburb of Toronto where we have lived
Before that we were in Montreal where we both worked for the
airline. First for Trans Canada Air Lines in the 50's and then
Air Canada. I retired from the work force in 1955 to start
raising a family and Olie retired in 1983. We have three children.
Janet, Barbara and Bruce. All married, happy and like
most airline kids they have itchy feet. Our son has just moved to
Singapore to work for two or three years so there was lots
of visiting back and forth etc. before he left. Now things have
settled back (we hope) and so life goes on.
Someone always seems to be going somewhere.
Olie worked from 1952 - 1983. Reservations YUL, Airport Agent
YULA, Cashier District Sales YUL, Marketing PVM - YUL,
Advertising Manager YUL. He travelled a great deal for his job.

. From Don Demeza - June 19th - Newfoundland Flotilla.
The 70 sailboats that left Toronto May 15th is right on schedule
and due to arrive St. Johns, Nfld. today. They then go on to
Trinity to meet the Matthew. It's been a great trip and you can
read their daily reports at http://www.canoe.ca/Cabot/home.html
I sent the details of this trip to ex-TCA'er Tom Cunningham in
Burin, Nfld. Talked to Tom on ham radio last Tuesday and many of
the radio operators visited his house for a shower - they were
anchored 100 yards from Tom's property so he saw quite a show
as they had a sail-past for Burin. The fleet will return via Nova
Scotia and New York, then up the Hudson to Lake Ontario.
Bay of Quinte 11th Annual Model Jet Rally at Mountainview Airport
was the best ever - great weather with 60 pilots and more than 100
aircraft registered to fly over the two days. A 20 foot model
Halifax lumbered into the air powered by four chain saw motors.
Also there were several real turbine models and we'll see more of
these in the future. These engines include an onboard computer to
control fuel flow based on exhaust temperature, RPM and the
requested power. After each flight you plug in a read-out monitor
to obtain the motor's history - the price is now reasonable
- $3800 U.S. installed in a Canadian designed model and test flown
by a modeller in Quebec. Jim McEwen, an Air Canada Airframe
Engineer at the Dorval Base flew his model for the first time at
the rally completing his test flight on the Friday night.
Charlie Lines, a USAir Captain from Rome, NY flew three aircraft,
one was an F14 Tomcat complete with a variable positioned wing -
US$17,000 for this model. Eric Dainty from Kanata successfully flew
a Harrier Jump Jet , managing the transition from lift off to full
forward speed. That's just a sample - about 3000 spectators
enjoyed the two day event.

other copies, we will gladly add his Internet address to the

Commandments of Helicopter Flying.
1. He who inspecteth not his aircraft giveth his angels cause to
2. Hallowed is thy airflow across thy disc restoring thine
3. Let infinite discretion govern thy movement near the ground,
for vast is the area of destruction.
4. Blessed is he who strives to retain his standards, for
without them he shall surely perish.
5. Thou shalt maintain thy speed whilst between ten and four hundred
feet lest the earth rise and smite thee.
6. Thou shall not make trial of thy centre of gravity lest thou
dash thy foot against a stone.
7. Thou shalt not let thy confidence exceed thy ability, for broad
is the way to destruction.
8. He that doeth his approach and alloweth the wind to turn behind
him shall surely make restitution.
9. He who alloweth his tail rotor to catch in the thorns curseth
his childrens children.
10. Observe thou this parable lest on the morrow thy friends mourn
. That's it for this time, please we need your input, send
