SONOMA SKYPARK NEWS OCTOBER 2017 AIRPORT HAPPENINGS- The good news is Taylorcraft pilot John Miles is out of the hospital and living in new quarters to him on 5th Street West.  John has given up driving but is still his jovial self with an active mind.  Unfortunately he is planning to sell his beloved BC-12 Taylorcraft.  Maybe someone on the field can put together a group of pilots to own it for very reasonable flying.  Nelleke Cooper is out of the hospital with a new hip, she will be flying soon.  Richard Craig is the very active flight instructor on the field...

    Sonoma Skypark News July 2015

    SONOMA SKYPARK NEWS JULY 2015 SKYPARK FAMILY FUN DAY- The weather was perfect for our open house. Yayoi West did a marvelous job getting a lot of volunteers lined up for the event.

Attendance was down slightly from previous years and can be explained by several free family events happening over the same weekend in the valley. Even with less attendance we can all feel much rewarded for our efforts....
