Thought I’d pass this along.  Looks like North Shore Aero Club out of Beverly is looking to expand their membership and upgrade their fleet.  Their putting a G430 in their 172 and looking for a newer Warrior with a G430.  If EEFC does not happen, North Shore Aero Club might be a good alternative for some of you.

Hi Penny, 

Here is an excerpt from the North Shore Aero Club's most recent newsletter, which could go out to the membership, per my recruitment announcement at Saturday's 106 meeting:   

"Membership Meeting on June 11 - There will be a meeting of the North Shore Aero Club on Thursday, June 11, at the Something Different Café at Beverly Airport East Side at 7:00 pm. Our guest speaker will be Alan Martin, the new Chief Controller at Beverly Airport. He will discuss new procedures including upcoming security changes, and I highly recommend that you attend to get the latest update . . . We are opening up the meeting to visitors (and prospective members), so please bring anyone who might be interested. As usual, sandwiches and snacks may be purchased prior to the meeting. " 

We're openly recruiting now for members.  For more details on the equipment read on: 

"We are prepared to afford improvements to our fleet. First, the more valuable 172 will get some paint on the leading edges of main wing and stabilizer, long overdue. . . Additionally, we [will]. . . replace the obsolete KLN 89B with a WAAS Garmin 430. This will greatly improve the safety and utility of that airplane as an instrument or VFR bird. Several private pilot members are working on their instrument ratings, who will join the many others of us who have reached that pinnacle of aviation training. The Garmin upgrade will bring the opportunity to each member to learn these newer technologies, and can be afforded by existing club resources. 

The Warrior project is considerably more expensive. Therefore, we are looking at a Warrior replacement in contrast to a Warrior upgrade. It looks to be cheaper to buy - in a buyer's market - a younger Warrior, with a good paint job, a Garman 430 WAAS already installed and greater horsepower, than to upgrade what we now own. That said, what do we do with the existing Warrior in a "buyer's" market? 

 . . . Our membership has been growing again. We are in fact back to 45 members. We need to find five new members to afford to keep both our old and buy a new Warrior. . .  50 - 60 members on three airplanes is sustainable and preferable, without a change in our cost structure - i.e. no increase in dues and no increase in prop costs. Simply increasing the fleet by one, gives us two airplanes to fly if one goes down for maintenance - a 50% increase in availability." 
Note that the above membership and equipment comments are from the President and Treasurer of NSAC, respectively.  I have omitted the financial stuff but can refer you to our website, which has recently been upgraded (which fact I just discovered):
