@MungoFuzzy’s Small Adventure #TheAviators

#TheAviators  Mungo @MungoFuzzy gave a delightful day brightening Sunday small mini-adventure flight mission on Twitter,  May 18.  Adventures are something individual flyers are always welcome to do and as Mungo himself expressed,  “I hope other flyers will share places they know well too.”

If any #TheAviators would like to do an adventure be it large, small or mini and needs a consult or mentor, we usually look to @ToddyFur.  The large adventure ideas will need a specific club date set.  It is highly recommended to include Toddy in those plans and date scheduling,  whereas a small or mini-adventure can be done on whatever schedule  the presenter has in mind.

We are blog transcribing just the beginning of Mungo’s small mini-adventure presentation here and thank Mungo for reminding us that Adventure Missions, leading and flying them are always open to individual #TheAviators.   If you would like to see Mungo’s entire adventure presentation, we recommend you go to his profile page @MungoFuzzy  as soon as possible and review it there.

Guidelines for #TheAviators Related to OTRB

#TheAviators club has hundreds of working volunteer hours behind the scenes that continue daily toward evolving the organization and flow of both the Quarterly Tribute Flights and establishing #TheAviators #Angels Squadron.  These are the club’s functions specific to passed away pets and animals known as OTRB (Over The Rainbow Bridge).

This blog briefing is directed to guidelines (protocols) for club members related to OTRB.

1.   As a member of #TheAviators, when you have a close pal go OTRB and you want #TheAviators #Angels to be aware of it, tweet or DM (check-in) with Squadron’s leader @MundarePeggy. In some cases, Peggy is already aware and actively  working with that impacted family and in other cases it will be newly known information.

2.   #TheAviators #Angels fly only at the request of an impacted family.  Often, behind the scenes that family is actively involved in providing information and pictures for the flight mission.  Past Twitter history revealed that otherwise (without family permissions) there were times when well-meaning, well intended friends hurt grieving families.

When #TheAviators #Angels was established this is their only criteria, a family must directly ask and/or directly give permission for the flight mission. (Even our own #TheAviators members fall within these guidelines when they have a pet pass away.)

3.   As a member of #TheAviators, it is OK to let any pals know there is #TheAviators #Angels and who the contact is @MundarePeggy. Peggy is the established squadron leader.  Peggy spent hours of time with club leadership team to bring about #TheAviators #Angels. Peggy, as leader is the one who is consistently available to work together with families, schedule and plan flights and has already given numerous volunteer hours doing just that.

4.   If you brought a close pal who has passed away forward to Peggy, resulting in a scheduled #TheAviators #Angels Flight Mission and are both interested, available, competent and confident to lead a scheduled flight – all you need to do is ask or be clear about that with Peggy early in.

Example: – ” Peggy, If pals name has a flight, I would be interested in leading it” via DM (direct message).

5.   We are asking pals to simply remember hundreds of behind the scene volunteer hours on a continuing basis go into #TheAviators and #TheAviators #Angels OTRB specific functions and flight missions. Please respect the organization and formats that have been put in place.  When it comes to the sensitivity of OTRB (passed away pets) and their families it is not advisable for individual #TheAviators flyers to arbitrarily launch their own flight missions. Be it Quarterly Missions or under #TheAviators #Angels we fly together as a group. 

These are now written common sense guidelines (protocols) for all #TheAviators club members.

If you have a comment, even an idea you think will help improve organization that is OTRB related, you are welcome to leave it in the comment section and/or contact @MundarePeggy by tweet or DM (direct message) on Twitter.

Thank you.  #TheAviators @theaviatorsclub HQ staff.

#TheAviators Graduates MAY JUNE JULY 2014

Congratulations and well done to #TheAviators graduates of Basic Flight School held in two sessions on Twitter –  Saturday, May 3, 2014 and to those #TheAviators who may later chose to self- study the Basic Flight School slides and complete the quiz to earn their #TheAviators license.

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 

Here are #TheAviators latest Basic Flight School graduates:

OTTO – @Ottogingerboy new to #TheAviators July 16 turned around his self-study program and obtained his Basic Flight School License on July 30.  Otto is still planning on attending Basic Flight School instruction Twitter scheduled for August 16.   A big well done and hearty congratulations to #TheAviators Otto! 

@Ottogingerboy license July 30

@Hambulldog license June 25 two

WABBIT @Burrow43 is a bright and vibrant recent #TheAviators flyer with a charming personality.  Wabbit often puts some great pictures together.   Wabbit is on #TheAviators #Angels roster flying those missions as often as available.  Wabbit is from “Austwalia” says his Twitter profile page! Wabbit achieved his Basic licence from #TheAviators self-study program.

ALFRED THE GREAT @ATGBear born in 1915,  a World War I mascot bear has seen many things in his 99 years. Alfred is also a very rare bear! Spry, keen and canny, we are positive Alfred has many #TheAviators Flight Missions forthcoming.

ATGbear

Barney and Cooper @barney_cooper are both Tibetan breed dogs.  They are also members of #ZombieSquad on Twitter.  #TheAviators have been particularly blessed with flyers who also belong to the #ZombieSquad group.  They often use their flight machines (airplanes, helicopters) to patrol in their quest to keep the world safe from Zombies.

BARNIE @BarnieShihTzu is a member of the #ZombieSquad group on Twitter as well as #TheAviators.  Barnie has a variety of interests and we see he has just launched the hash tag #TeamUnderdog with a website to go along with it.

BarnieShihTzu

BO THE BEAR @BoTheBear may be a small-sized bear, however Bo has big brain power with full-time employment.  Bo is the tech, self-described “Twitter geek” for Kirby Bears @kirby_bears who specialize in making handcrafted bears.

BoTheBear

SUNNY @cagans76 is a Husky and has a Husky fursib named Juneau. When Sunny is not flying #TheAviators,  the  Huskies love Jeep riding and camping!

cagans76

Dogs FINN and POEBEARDIE @dgbu come from both cats and dogs loving home where all live together with their humans.  They certainly enjoy making new friends and having some good tweet conversation on Twitter.

dgbu

PHOEBE @dog_phoebe is also a member of the #ZombieSquad group on Twitter as well as #TheAviators.  Frankly, we are astonished how many things we have in common with Phoebe.  Phoebe likes car rides, food and NOT getting wet!  We are in complete harmony on all those topics Phoebe!

FINN @FinnDogSays has had one huge and vibrant week and the week isn’t over quite yet.  May 3 – Finn got his Basic Flight School License.  May 4 – Poochie siblings reunion coming up to the first anniversary of being rescued.  May 10 – Happy Birthday Finn, ONE year old!

FinnDogSays

GOLDIE @GoldieBruin describes herself as “a little bear enjoying life on the go”  She certainly is that, she flies and is a self-starter. Goldie made sure to successfully self-study for her license  in April and then made sure to come to May’s flight school.  It’s a good thing when our new #TheAviators pals have such sweetness and great tenacity to achieve.

GoldieBruin

We never tire of saying that JENSON and ZAPPER @maxmaster31 are the only known Degus who fly #TheAviators (to this date).  We shall make it easy on you by answering the question, “What is a Degu?”    Be sure you Twitter stop by and give your Degu pals Jenson and Zapper  a happy tweet greeting.

maxmaster31

OLIVIA @oliviackcs is a delight! Olivia has a keen interest in mechanical engineering, in part influenced by a”hudad” (human dad). OLIVIA  as does @BonniedaWestie and numerous aviators over time continues to perfect and fit their planes out with ABD and ASD (Automated Bacon Dispenser, Automated Sausage Dispenser).  We are clueless to what may happen as far as political correctness and official decorum when pig or pigs fly. That is to say when a pig becomes an official #TheAviators member.  We’ll have to hope that all parties may be able to work it out.  Right now, many flyers are enjoying the boon of bacon in the sky during many flights. Olivia has a co-pilot in Benedict the Kirby Rabbit.

oliviackcs

ROSIE @Rosiebear90 is another lovely bear.  We greatly admire her sweater collection.  We and our own human have much in common with Rosie. Flowers, flower beds and flower gardens and a love of cakes.  Rosie is wise to stay in shape  with the weekly #keepfits exercise program on Twitter.

Rosiebear90

LISA @StuffMyPetsSay is involved in a huge variety of Twitter organizations and activities throughout the greater anipal community on Twitter.  Lisa provided us with all that information. It is located in #TheAviators Resources Page (just scroll down the page to find Lisa):

GABBY @The_Gabby_Dog  (and “humom”) are pet columnists. They recently wrote about #TheAviators.  We are delighted to bring you a reprint with permission here at the club blog:  What @The_Gabby_Dog Said About #TheAviators.   We are very happy that Gabby made it to Basic Flight School.

BERTIE @TheBertieBear is an international traveling bear that lives between Dubai and Malibu. We are so pleased that Bertie comes and flies whenever possible and came to Basic Flight School.

TheBertieBear

MISS TTT @tiredteacherted is a “quiet one”.  We think she is a pretty sharp dresser and an avid reader!  One of those beary good opportunities to get to know a new friend and pal a little more. We are thrilled Miss TTT earned her #TheAviators license!

How To Self Study For Basic Flight School License #TheAviators

 @lucky_GSD Miss Lucky

 Captain Miss Lucky is one of #TheAviators noted Self-Study graduates.  After completing self-study Miss Lucky has gone on to participate  in  many Tribute missions while specializing in Adventure ideas and leading those missions.  Miss Lucky is an Ambassador for #TheAviators to many pet related groups that have regular twitter meetings such as #k9hour.  

Miss Lucky supports sisfur Angel Peggy @MundarePeggy who captains #TheAviators #Angels Squadron.  Both Miss Lucky and sisfur Angel Peggy are now members of #TheAviators Leadership Team.   Miss Lucky has attended Basic Flight School sessions since obtaining her self-study license as both a participating flyer and a wingpal” (helper to new flyers).

BASIC FLIGHT SCHOOL – #TheAviators offer two sessions of Basic Flight School via Twitter on a quarterly basis.  The next Basic Flight School sessions are scheduled Saturday, November 1,  2014.   You can find all that information post pinned at top of #TheAviators blog. 

 While all #TheAviators are welcome to come and Twitter fly any scheduled mission with or without having a license, earning that Basic Flight School license is a very special achievement that we as a club are proud to offer our members.

SELF STUDY – So what does “Self Study” mean? On occasion(s) some  of #TheAviators  did not get to Basic Flight School due to humans schedules, the availability of devices (like having to share devices with others in the family), the timing of when during the quarter they joined #TheAviators, and various other reasons.

Some of these #TheAviators  want that license  and Basic Flight School is Twitter taught only on that quarterly basis.  #TheAviators has this way to self-study for the Basic Flight School license.

HOW TO SELF-STUDY  –

1.  Tweet @ToddyFur on Twitter, that you plan to self-study.

2.  Go to this link on #TheAviators Website: http://theaviatorsclub.org/Basic1.html

3.  Read the directions  and  review all the Basic Flight School slides (pictures). They are all at that link.

4.  The quiz is the last slide picture.  READ THE DIRECTIONS on how to format your quiz answers and send them DM (direct message) to @ToddyFur.  

5.  Upon completion, @ToddyFur will then create and tweet you your Basic #TheAviators license.

6.   Make sure we @3DogsWhite know of your newly earned license so we may proudly add you to #TheAviators Graduates blog for that quarter. 

Happy flying with #TheAviators!  Your pals Daisy and Taz @3DogsWhite
