Newsletters

Newsletters are now published on a semi-annual basis.  It is felt that most members and visitors can get current information from the home page, and that will keep them current on wing activities.

The Flyer is the monthly newsletter of the High Sky Wing. We are making it available here, online, in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and can be downloaded from the button or link below.

To help save on printing and mailing costs, we encourage all Wing members who have Internet access to download their copy of The Flyer here. Note that these hyperlinks will open in a new browser window and you only have to close that new window to return to this page.

In an effort to bring you better quality photos, we have uploaded a larger newsletter file and it could take a minute or more to upload on your computer.  Please be patient.  We think you will appreciate the better quality.
