I learned to fly in 1961 in a pair of old Aeronca Champs that belonged to our flying club. When my family came along, I gave up flying to take care of my family. I spent 16 years in various positions In Boy Scoouts of America as Cub Master, Den Leader, Assistant Scout Master and Scoutmaster. I've been doing volunteer work for Youth For Christ for 16 years now even though my family has grown up. I always figrued I would be able to pick up where I left off flying when the family had grown. Unfortunately, do to forced early retirement and the downturn in the economy, I haven't been able to fly again. Out of curiosity, I started trying to track down the two old Champs I learned to fly in. One had fallen completely off the grid, but the other is deteriorating away in a farm field in Idaho. I have arranged to buy the Champ, but don't have the funds to bring it home or restore it. I would really like to save this Champ. It has worked hard in its lifetme and deserves to be saved.
