Richard Baptista, more fondly known here at Foothills Aviation as Ricky or little Ricky even if he is old enough to drive and go away to college, is working as part of an undergraduate research team on two NASA projects.

Our new hangar is mostly finished and waiting for a little paint before we move our offices. Ah, the space! Six planes and room to spare, so far. Next on the to-build list, the offices, the records vault, and storage rooms. Then, we'll be ready to paint and move in, by November we hope. We'll let you know when we schedule the Hangar-Warming.
