  • From Nic B: The FARM Club held their first of two 2023 Float Fly charity events in Bealeton, Virginia on 17 June.
    Twenty-two stalwart junior and senior AMA members participants braved sunshine, smoke haze, and 15-18 mph winds to proudly pilot their float planes, amphibians, speed boats, tug boats, and scale destroyers on and from Lake Ritchie.
    The scale USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) Arliegh Burk-class destroyer braved the, at times, scale sea state 3 conditions for several forays on the lake.
    While the McCain was on one of its missions, FARM’s recovery boat Captain, Ralph Graul, took time out to fly his float plane to scout for the McCain.
    All in all, it was a successful day for pilots, boat Captains, and the Fauquier County Community Food Bank.
    Thanks, Nic!
