Cardinal Flyers Benefits:
There are times in any aircraft owner's life when you just need a
That might take the form of advice from an expert, a few words of
encouragement in the face of a daunting project or a shoulder to
cry on when everything goes wrong.
One of the central benefits of CFO is the connection it creates
between you and hundreds of Cardinal owners around the country.
There are very few situations, from a 'sleeping' valve to a multiple
heart bypass, that someone else will not have already experienced.
And that experience can be a great comfort and aid when you need it.
CFO joins it's members together in several ways:
All in all, CFO can bring the power of the Cardinal community right
to your terminal, doorstep or hanger door. Just dive in, pitch in and
we'll see where working together can take us!
- Through Regional Flyins: Many CFO members have
volunteered their time and a great deal of effort to put together
regional fly-ins for Cardinal owners. These events give us a chance
to meet each other and compare notes (and aircraft!).
- Through local contact: Between the digest and flyins we
learn about like-minded Cardinal owners in our area, and that can
have several benefits. Whether you need to find a mechanic in an
unfamiliar area or could use a hand out at the airport, a little
Cardinal-knowledgable local talent can be a big help.
We hope to build this network further in the near future. Stay
- Through the Digest: The CFO Digest is
our primary lifeline for help and support. Often just reading will
bring us the information we need to know that we're not alone as we
work to maintain and upgrade our airplanes.
It's when the chips are really down (or in the oil) that the digest
comes through. A quick question to the group will bring a fast response
with suggestions, support and the occasional miracle. We've dealt with
everything from complete oil dumps to the trials of a triple bypass,
and we've all grown from the experience.
- Through the Web Page: As a constant companion to the digest,
our web site captures the nuggets from the
digest and other member experiences for your browsing and learning
enjoyment. This helps us base our
conversations on the current state of knowledge and helps us build on
what we already know as a community.
You may recall hearing about a certain problem in the digest, perhaps
even looked it up in the archives. But as they say, a picture is worth
a lot of words, and the web page tries to put pictures alongside the
key words. Many of our members take pictures of there more challenging
experiences, and some even build web pages for us!
