Ryan Reunion....75th Anniversary (2016)

8 posts in this topic

All,

Next year (2016) will be the 75th anniversary of the Ryan PT22. We are looking into the possibility of having a West Coast Reunion at Pine Mountain, San Diego (KSEE), or Cable. It's getting harder and harder for each of us to find the time to get together like we have in years past. Many of the old group have "Gone West" or lost medicals. I feel privileged to have been part of this group for the past 28 years and realize the value of these Reunions. Lots of Fun and info are to be had by all, weather you own a Ryan or just love the aircraft. We have many new members joining as the aircraft change hands and I find myself passing on a lot of info that was gathered/passed down to me at these events.

Would love to receive input from ANYONE on how we can make this an event to remember!

Hi Chris, any idea on a potential date for the event? Those of us from far away need to start planning early.

Hi Chris

My name is Scott Taberner I own a Ryan PT22 in Australia and I'd be keen to come over for the 75th anniversary, at this stage I'm planning to come over for Oshkosh so a weekend around that time would be great.

Scott.
