If you shop on Amazon, there is now a way -- using AmazonSmile -- for you to specify that 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases go directly to SCAPA! There is no cost to you! SCAPA is an approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and as such we are now part of the AmazonSmile program. The link below, or Amazon Smile button on this web page, will take you directly to smile.amazon.com in support of SCAPA.

Log in to your Amazon account as you always do. It says "California Pilots Association" because SCAPA is an affiliated chapter of CalPilots, but be assured that all proceed go directly to SCAPA! https://smile.amazon.com/ch/68-0467684

Two New Wagons are in the DART Hangar!
Written by Paul Marshall   
Saturday, 24 November 2018
Hi all: Rod Pharis (DART Co-Director) and I drove down to Salinas Grainger and brought home two new Little Giant Wagons. The new wagons feature 2,000 lb. rating; 8-inch polyurethane wheels with grease fittings that roll over pebbles and never go flat; bigger load beds; and much sturdier construction than our old ones.

Rod was able to wrangle the Northrop Grumman discount. As for our old wagons, two of them still work and a third has the wheel that has fallen off.
