#TheAviators First Orientation

Welcome Welcome anipal! You have “goggled up” and are now ready to Twitter fly with #TheAviators @theaviatorsclub.   Here we have tips and information to help you have a pleasant experience.

#TheAviators primary mandate is “to fly with honourable (honorable) pursuits.” #TheAviators Twitter- fly Basic Flight Schools, Advanced Flight Schools, Adventures and Tributes Missions.

#TheAviators is 100% volunteer powered.  Every #TheAviators effort you see has all been done with no compensation.   (We certainly will add that @ToddyFur has built and financially sustains out of own pocket everything it takes to have a website.)

#TheAviators only asks of you your involvement and participation in events.   Get involved with your club!  Offer guidance to other #TheAviators and come Twitter fly anytime you can!

#TheAviators current Leadership Team is @ToddyFur @3DogsWhite @clingycat, @MundarePeggy and @lucky_GSD on Twitter. Special advisors to Leadership Team are @SallyjainW and @oliviackcs.   Please be sure to be following @theaviatorsclub for news and mission updates and check the tweet page daily if you can or at least weekly.  All club announcements and events are tweeted there.  

The Aviators Club website  –   RE:  EVENTS  –  Please review this website page (the link above),  scroll down to Schedule  – – it  will show  scheduled #TheAviators event dates. 

EXPLORE  all the other tabs listed at the website so you can get to know #TheAviators better.

#TheAviators Club Blog  – USEFUL INFORMATION – Please review blog postings as much as you can.  It is our current main means of communication when there is too much information to tweet.

 You can learn many aspects of how to have more fun with #TheAviators by simply reading the blog posts even from past events. There are many useful tips you will find and can use.

OTRB Special Needs – #TheAviators #Angels is a specialty squadron designed to meet the needs of anipal accounts in the distress of having a pet/animal critically ill or about to pass away (OTRB – Over The Rainbow Bridge).  For the newly OTRB,  they can do a flight mission like a Rainbow Bridge Escort.  For a departed pet that has been passed away for a while an Honors Flypast is a lovely tribute flight.

 The main criteria is for the impacted family to ask for #TheAviators #Angels.  You can read more about this squadron here from @MundarePeggy  #TheAviators #Angels Squadron Update 

Any pilots wishing to join #TheAviators #Angels – tweet or DM (direct message) @MundarePeggy on Twitter .  Angel Peggy will see that you are added to #TheAviators #Angels roster.

OTRB – #TheAviators also fly Quarterly Tribute Missions. Each flyer prepares their own tributes and tweets them during those missions. @3DogsWhite have  a TRAINING blog which they update for each Quarterly Mission:  Flying Quarterly Tribute Mission #TheAviators 

OTRB –  #THEAVIATORS GUIDELINES RELATED TO OTRB

#TheAviators Resources Page – RESOURCES – Individual flyers who wish to share their anipal websites, blogs, interests, other information are welcome to become a part of this page.  The editor, page updater and contact is @SallyjainW on Twitter.

MAKING FRIENDS –  #TheAviators as a club does not promise you new friends.  It gives you the opportunity to make and sustain your own friendships. 

Here are some Twitter tips that may be helpful to you.

Your Twitter profile –  if you are able to add #TheAviators in your profile – other club members can find you easier.

 If you are able to add  ” #TheAviators @theaviatorsclub” in your profile – Twitter tech (when properly working) of its own accord will place you in “people”.   When a search of @theaviatorsclub is made you are then associated as being close to the club account.  These are all your personal decisions to make, not  club requirements.

@3DogsWhite currently has a Twitter public list of every known #TheAviators they were able to search and find.  You can subscribe to that list on Twitter or simply follow individuals off that list according to your own personal needs:   The Aviators Members 

 2014  #TheAviators Group Pictures   

2013 #TheAviators Group Pictures 

2012 #TheAviators History (research is in process) by @3DogsWhite  #TheAviators on Twitter established (started) May of 2012. 

This Twitter search page will help you find other new members to #TheAviators and tweet them hello, perhaps opening friendship doors for you:  brand new to #TheAviators 

Welcome!  #TheAviators HQ staff along with the assistance of Daisy and Taz @3DogsWhite wish you happy flying with #TheAviators

Leadership team overwhelming recommends individual  #TheAviators to come to Basic Flight School and earn their license.  The group fun, camaraderie and yes, even chaos of learning aviation terms and Twitter flying is without compare.

SELF STUDY – So what does “Self Study” mean?  On occasion(s) some of #TheAviators are not able to attend the two sessions of Basic Flight School on the quarterly scheduled date and they want #TheAviators Twitter flying license.  #TheAviators has provided a way to self-study.  Here is the club blog post:

HOW TO SELF STUDY FOR BASIC FLIGHT SCHOOL LICENSE #TheAviators :    http://wp.me/p4jivZ-9T 

On behalf of #TheAviators @theaviatorsclub, Leadership Team @ToddyFur, @clingycat and us @3DogsWhite thank you for earning your Aviator Licenses and your continued participation with #TheAviators.

#TheAviators #Angels Squadron

#TheAviators #Angels Squadron

 #TheAviators Angels Squadron

Let us introduce a new squadron to #TheAviators and a new idea. We hope that you’ll get behind it. #TheAviators #Angels are sensitive flyers who have either gone Over The Rainbow Bridge (OTRB) or know just what furends are facing when the bridge beckons. #TheAviators #Angels are willing to fly in immediate and timely service to other anipals in distress when OTRB is close.

Many of us have had to face this most difficult time when frankly some friends and workmates just don’t understand how devastating the loss can be. We are not and will not be  “ambulance chasers”.  We want to be available on request from furends in need. #TheAviators #Angels Squadron will be a service we promote – call on us, we understand where you are because we have been here too.

ALL #TheAviators who see the #Angels Squadron out working may always take part by flying support on a mission when available and/or simply sending a tweet of loving moral support to the family and/or pet account being  escorted to Rainbow Bridge and/or an honours flight mission.  Respectful and sensitive support is the guideline for us all.   #TheAviators #Angels are available to all on Twitter. The only criteria is the affected family has to ask for them.

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT MUST READ for all #TheAviators:  GUIDELINES FOR #THEAVIATORS RELATED TO OTRB 

 

Listed are the first of  #TheAviators #Angels to have joined the Squadron.

INFORMATION GATHERING –  Taz and myself know we are short of information and/or if a license picture was issued  (did they graduate?) for several names.

Twitter is an immediate medium.  It is difficult to chase down past information.  We are in touch with @ToddyFur  and will update this post as necessary.

SPEAKING OF TODDY – We are so thankful #TheAviators has both a website and this blog – thanks to @ToddyFur – we may now begin to preserve some still available #TheAviators history.

On behalf of The Aviators Club (@theaviatorsclub), your current leadership team – @ToddyFur, @clingycat and us @3DogsWhite  – congratulations and we thank each of you who earned your Aviator License.

#TheAviators Graduates FEB MAR APRIL 2014

Congratulations and well done to #TheAviators  graduates of Basic Flight School held in two sessions on Twitter Saturday, February 1, 2014 and to those #TheAviators who later chose to self- study the Basic Flight School slides and complete the quiz to earn their #TheAviators license.
