Approval!

Today (April 12) we crossed a major milestone for our project!  The Fresno County Transportation Authority Board approved the $1,071,348 grant agreement with the City of Mendota and City of Reedley that authorizes the purchase of the four (4) Pipistrel Alpha Electro trainers, chargers for each aircraft, two new hangars for Mendota, and $90,000 in training assistance grant funds for youth from disadvantaged communities in Fresno County.  Each city must now approve the agreement, but that is just procedural at this point.  We should be ordering aircraft by the end of April or the first week of May.  Will update everyone once the orders are placed and we get an estimated delivery.  Stay tuned..
