Marc had a good initiative last year having pilots participate in recording and reporting their flying by asking them to fill in a sheet to record the number of different people they provided ride to in their plane, and also a sheet to record the number of different airports landed at in the year. Marc will endeavor do this again this year. This is called the Passport Program – 12 riders/12 airports.
