Sadly, Dave Sclair will not be hosting his annual Residential Airpark forum at AirVenture Oshkosh this year. Dave was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in mid-March. Since the diagnosis, a round of radiation and chemotherapy have failed to produce positive results. Today, Dave is enrolled in Hospice as his condition has deteriorated significantly.
Dave has invested more than 25 years into building the various components of Living With Your Plane. It is safe to say that the fly-in lifestyle that many of us enjoy has been largely influenced by his years of hard work and dedication to the cause. Our goal is to perpetuate his work and continue to promote the lifestyle that so many of us have come to enjoy, because that is what Dave wants us to do.
As a result of Dave’s condition, we have asked Mike Ciochetti of Heaven’s Landing to host the Thursday, July 28 forum (Pavilion 01 – Pacific Coast Avionics). Mike has humbly accepted. For that… THANK YOU MIKE!
Here is where we will be mixing things up a bit. This year the annual Living With Your Plane forum will focus on fun and interesting airpark experiences, beautiful airpark photos, and the people that make them such a great place to live. Airpark living is a great LIFESTYLE and it is time for us to play that up.
If you have a great story and/or photos that you would like to share, drop us an email (Ben Sclair and Mike Ciochetti). We’ll make sure to do our best and spread the word about the positive experiences within the Airpark Lifestyle.
For the years of wonderful support, Dad asked me to say … THANK YOU!
If you’d like to send Dave a note, please send it to my email or via mail to Dave Sclair, Living With Your Plane, P.O. Box 39099, Lakewood, WA 98496.
