Pinch hitter course planned

Class participants will gather from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday nights from Sept. 23 to Oct. 28 in the Willis Wing. Four participants are required for the class to be held. The cost is $125 and the instructor will be Bill Albers, an aircraft owner and has a private pilot license, an instrument rating and a commercial pilot license.

He has conducted, every year, for 12 years, private pilot, instrument pilot, commercial pilot ground school classes. In addition to the ground school classes, Albers has taught several pinch hitter courses.
