Default New assignment -Wichita KS anyone?

Just found out about my new assignment at the Beechcraft factory in Wichita. I'm very excited about it. Anyone in the area? Should be moving there in the spring.

Good luck on your new assignment. It will be fun being able to go to so many parts and engines right in the same town! Have fun and good luck

Hello Jeremy,
I live in Newton which is approx 30 miles north of Wichita. There is a group of us around the Wichita area that are either building or flying RVs and we meet once a month and call ourselves the Aircapital RVators.

We do have a Facebook page for the AirCapital RVators group. You can contact Lonny who is in that group and get your your name added to the monthly meeting e-mail notification. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I'm a C-17 dude thats been teaching in the T-6 for the past 4 years. There is actually an active duty job at the T-6 factory. That's where I'll be "stationed."

Default Congratulations!

Jeremy,
That sounds like a dream job!
I hope we can get together one day before you move.

I lived in Wichita for about a year back in 77 when I worked at Cessna.
I'm sure it's changed a bunch since then, but I liked it.

Mark
