Col. David Sale (U.S. Army ret.) was the guest speaker at the Sun Lakes Aero Club gathering on Feb. 26 at the Sun Lakes Country Club. Col. Sale briefed the more than 50 club members and guests about his flying experiences, including some 2,000 combat hours flying helicopters during the Vietnam conflict.

The club will complete its 2023-24 season on April 22 with a presentation by Aero Club member and Sun Lakes resident John Philp, who will talk about his 30-plus-year career as a commercial pilot, including many years flying for JetBlue Airways. He retired in March of this year.
