March General Meeting with Guest Speaker Mr. Thor Solberg, Jr.

Guest Speaker: Mr. Thor Solberg, Jr.
Date & Time: Thursday March 3, 2011 @ 7:30pm
Location: NJ Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum at Teterboro

This month's general meeting will feature Mr. Thor Solberg, Jr., the owner of Solberg Airport (N51) in Readington, NJ. Thor is a former commercial airline pilot who recently retraced his father's flight from the U.S. to Norway. In 1935, Thor Sr. made the first successful flight from U.S. to Norway, and you'll see his name in our own Hall of Fame at Teterboro. Thor will be showing some film and photos from his father's flight---more than 75 years ago. Most of us have flown to Solberg Airport many times and it promises to be a great opportunity to meet the person behind this friendly community airport.

The meeting is open to the public. As an added bonus, the NJ Aviation Hall of Fame and Museum will extend free admissions to members and guests starting at 7:00pm. Refreshments will be served at 7:30pm, and the meeting will begin promptly at 8:00pm.
