We started Instructing early.....
Jan 10th, 2011 at 9:16am
 
This undated letter from George Lacey (likely around 1980) demonstrates a very early history of teaching guys to fly. Over the years we've gone through a lot of students, and A LOT of instructers..

George, of course, went on to become instrumental in founding MAST in Truro.

"243 Pleasant st.
Truro, N. S.

Mr. Doug Grace Pres.
AS/RCM
Halifax, N. S.

Dear Doug:

This 1s just to say "THANK YOU" to all the
instructors and members of AS/ReM for all the help they
have given me in learning to fly a RCM alrcraft, especially
Jim Turner who seems to have a great deal of patience
when it comes to instructing a dummie like myself.
My airplane is still in one piece after many
hours of reconstruction and flies itself now, despite
a spectacular crash into an old hard apple tree due to
pilot error and a screaming dive to earth due to flying with
undercharged batteries.

I have had 79 flights with it now and from
what I can learn from reading and others in RCM for
a first year pilot that would have to be termed a very
successful year and I owe it all to AS/RCM. So again a
very special “THANK YOU" to all of you and I am looking
forward to being a member of AS/RCM in the years ahead.


If time permits would like you to
read this at your meeting."
